Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years

BERNADETTE CORPORATION. 2000 Wasted Years. Ed. by Bernadette Corporation with Jim Fletcher, Richard Birkett & Stefan Kalmár. Contrib. by Caroline Busta, Jim Fletcher, Tom Holert & Josef Strau.

Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years” is the first monograph on the work of Bernadette Corporation, the New York-based collective founded in the early 90s. The book extends from their retrospective exhibition Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years held at Artists Space in 2012, constituting a further site to reframe BC’s activities and identity of the past 20 years. Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years is structured chronologically, loosely following the year-by-year timeline of the group’s history that also formed the backbone of their Artists Space exhibition. The publication gathers a vast array of visual and textual material. It includes the rich image grammar and styling of BC’s operations within the realm of fashion; interventions into the magazine culture of the ’90s, as well as BC’s own short-lived periodical Made in USA; the fragmented output of Pedestrian Cinema during the group’s Berlin years; and the fusion of poetics, branding and meta-commentary within their gallery shows of the 2000s

Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2014. book launch @ Motto Berlin 18.07.2014
start 7pm

Catalogue of the eponym’s exhibition at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, Spoleto, 23 June – 26 August 2012 and at &: Christophe Daviet-Thery, Paris, 26 October – 20 December 2012
Edited by Christophe Daviet-Thery and Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié
Essays: “Do Androids Dream about Kindles” by Vincent Pécoil, “American/English” by Yann Sérandour
Bibliographical notes: Francine Delaigle
Design: Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié

This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ‘ghosts’ of the missing books.
Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one.
This fervor is visible in The Good Life or American/English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.

On the occasion of the book launch, a part of the project by Yann Sérandour, Printed exhibition: Bibliothèque d’un amateur. Richard Prince’s Publications 1981-2012, will be shown in the vitrines of Motto Berlin’s courtyard.
