Carlos Bunga

This publication documents the special commission made for the Sonae/Serralves Project in 2012 for which the artist created a very large structure for the entrance hall of the Serralves Museum emphasizing the space’s verticality and functionality, in dialogue with Álvaro Siza’s architecture. Richly illustrated with Bunga’s projects in other artistic contexts ― Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brazil), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, EUA), 29th São Paulo Biennial, Miami Art Museum (Miami, EUA), Krome Gallery (Berlin, Germany), Center for Curatorial Studies (New York, USA), Manifesta 5 (San Sebastián, Spain), among others ― the book features texts by João Fernandes and Ricardo Nicolau (exhibition curators), Adam Budak (curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.), Marta Jecu (writer and researcher at CICANT Institute, Universidade Lusófona, Lisbon) and an interview conducted by María Inez Rodríguez (former chief curator at Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City) offering comprehensive insights into Carlos Bunga’s work.

The visual Event : An Education In Appearance. Oliver Klimpel (ed.). SPECTOR BOOKS.

Is it possible to understand graphic design as a practice beyond an object-centric approach, as a practice beyond the conception and production of well-designed and printed artefacts? Which other potentials to create a public should be considered integral to design as an activity? “The Visual Event” explores the question of how such an extended practice could be thought, which graphic, spatial and temporal forms such a situational practice could take, and tests the idea of the “visual event” from various perspectives of visual culture. The project compiles numerous contributions by artists, academics, designers, architects, and students of the System-Design Class at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig.

Kader Attia: Transformations. Ellen Blumenstein (Ed.). Spector Books.

Kader Attia: Transformations. Ellen Blumenstein (Ed.). Spector Books.

The manifold entanglements of African and Western culture are a central motif in the oeuvre of the Algerian-French artist Kader Attia. The influence of traditional African architecture on European modernism forms the background for his voluminous spatial installations, videos and photographs, as much as the re-appropriation of North and South American black music within African Jazz and Pop of the 1960s up to the 1980s. His work manifests the productivity of dissonance: Where African masks, stuffed animals, scientific instruments, and historical artifacts seemingly have nothing in common, the artist unearths connections between Europe’s handling of its own colonial history, current migration politics, and the urbanistic realities of its metropolises of today. Based on Kader Attia’s solo show “Repair. 5 Acts” at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, this publication focuses on works from the years 2008–2013 and places them in a broader art historical concept.

/

Die vielfältigen Verschränkungen afrikanischer und westlicher Kultur sind ein zentrales Motiv im Oeuvre des algerisch- französischen Künstlers Kader Attia: der Einfluss traditioneller afrikanischer Architektur auf die europäische Moderne bilden ebenso den Hintergrund für seine raumgreifenden Installationen, Videos und Fotografien, wie die Wiederaneignung nord-, bzw. südamerikanischer schwarzer Musik im afrikanischen Jazz und Pop der 1960er bis 80er Jahre. In seinem Werk zeigt sich die Produktivität der Dissonanz: wo afrikanische Masken, ausgestopfte Tiere, naturwissenschaftliche Instrumente, historische Artefakte scheinbar nichts miteinander zu tun haben, stellt der Künstler Verbindungen zwischen dem europäischen Umgang mit der eigenen Kolonialgeschichte, der aktuellen Migrationspolitik und städtebauliche Realitäten in den Metrololen von heute her. Ausgehend von Kader Attias Einzel- ausstellung „Reparatur. 5 Akte“ in den KW Institute for Contemporary Art fokussiert diese Publikation auf Werke aus den Jahren 2008 – 2013 und stellt sie in einen breiteren kunsthistorischen Kontext.
