This volume explores three groups of paintings created between 1980 and 1986, the X, Plus and Frame paintings. The outcome of Mangold's experiments with rectangles and squares these works are painted in vivid color combinations, with just-visible brushwork, and are reproduced with fantastic clarity.
Urs Rausmuller, an artist and collector, speaks of the subtle qualities of Ryman's paintings, their ability to react to the light and their environment and their effect on beholders. Rausmuller is an outstanding expert on Ryman's oeuvre. Ever since the 1970's, he has internationally presented the artist at one-man shows. Since 1983, he has been showing the internationally largest permanent exhibition of Ryman's paintings in an exemplary presentation at the Hallen fur neue Kunst in Schaffhausen.

Stan Douglas, born in Vancouver in 1960, is among a younger generation of artists that has come of age artistically around figures like Jeff Wall and Rodney Graham. His thorough photographic series and elaborate film and video installations, all technically meticulous, are the base for subtle societal criticisms and investigations of authorship and subjectivity. They are media machines, Automats of a sort, which involve the viewer in their mechanics; they reflect an era of transition from literally mechanical reproduction to electronic saturation. Douglas's widely appreciated work has appeared in the 1995 Whitney Biennial and three Venice Biennales; at Documenta 9, 10 and 11; at the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao; and at the Museums of Modern Art in San Francisco and New York. He has had solo exhibitions at the Dia Foundation for the Arts in New York, The Art Institute of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, among others.

This entrancing full-color book (the first by American photographer
Peter Kayafas) documents the astounding folk art of Ion Stan Patras
(1908-1977), a Romanian woodcarver whose life's work was the
storytelling grave markers of his northern Romanian village, Sapanta.
Kayafas fell under the spell of these vividly colored, painted
masterpieces in 2003, and returned to Romania in 2004 determined to
capture both the artwork and poetic epitaphs on the grave markers.
Whether someone died young or old, quietly in his bed or far from
home, Patras' markers remain unique memorials, and Kayafas' photos
do them justice. Includes meticulously translated epitaphs by Adrian
This book contains three essays about the Milgram Re-enactment, a reconstruction of Stanley Milgram's notorious "Obedience to Authority" experiment. They ask what transformation occurs when a laboratory experiment is transferred into a gallery and played out in front of an audience.
There is nothing cool or distant about Zoltán Jókay's portraits. Revolving as they do around themes of intimacy, closeness, and the sense of being touched, both literally and figuratively, his images sometimes seem anachronistic, but that is part of their unique appeal. Jókay's pictures are "self-images": forming a personal visual language, they are a tool through which the photographer can approach his own biography, through which he can understand it and protect himself against it.
