Ricarda Roggan. Apokryphen. Spector Books

Over the past two years Ricarda Roggan collected and loaned from various museums and institutions objects which originally belonged to a key figure in the German cultural canon. She photographed them like the ceramic fish once owned by Ricarda Huch or Martin Heidegger’s pocket watch. These objects remain as artefacts in collections and have no intrinsic value. They only take on historical significance when they are shown in public, suffused with an awareness of the identity of their former owners. But what will remain of an object once it has been taken down from its pedestal only to disappear again in the archives? The artist locates her photography in the gap that is created between the knowing viewer and the photographed object and asks the question: Can photography preserve and convey the original auras of these everyday objects? Apocrypha was shown in 2014 in the Echo exhibition at the Kunstverein Hannover and at the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen.

Martin Kippenberger . »Du kommst auch noch in Mode« – Plakate von Martin Kippenberger . Steidl

Posted in art, Artist Book, exhibition catalogue, exhibitions, Motto Berlin store, poster on January 8th, 2015

The posters created by Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997) for his own exhibitions represent a core aspect of his multimedia output and artistic vision. The show You too will eventually come into fashion – Posters by Martin Kippenberger therefore reveals an essential slice of Kippenberger’s characteristic, often wildly absurd sense of humor.

The exhibition marks the Museum Folkwang´s acquisition of a comprehensive collection of posters by Martin Kippenberger in 2013 which substantially enhances the existing group of works by the artist held at the museum.

A catalogue is due for release to accompany the show, available from Edition Folkwang/Steidl.

 Lessons in Posing Subjects. Robert Heinecken. WIELS. Triangles Books.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, this book presents the series Lessons in Posing Subjects which Robert Heinecken created in 1981-1982 and reproduced here in its entirety for the first time.
Playing with the reality effect inherent to instant photographs, Heinecken re-contextualizes in this series images found in mail order catalogues, which he juxtaposes with ironic texts.
At once seductive and full of humour, his ‘lessons’ are no less provocative, bearing witness to the commitment of this controversial artist, who considered his approach a form of ‘guerrilla’ artistic practice.
