John Fahey: Paintings. Inventory Press

The much-revered avant-garde guitarist John Fahey (1939–2001) incorporated influences ranging from folk, blues, and bluegrass to classical music, musique concrete, and noise in his primarily acoustic guitar-based compositions. Considered a legend by many, Fahey released upward of three dozen LPs in his lifetime.

Relatively late in life, Fahey extended his so-called American Primitive approach beyond music, and into the creation of a substantial body of paintings created in makeshift studios in and around Salem, Oregon. Painting on found poster board and discarded spiral notebook paper, working with tempera, acrylic, spray paint, and magic marker, Fahey’s intuitive approach echoes the action painters and abstract expressionists. The same alluring and tranquilizing aesthetics that defines much of Fahey’s musical output are equally present in his paintings.

The first publication focusing on his visual output, John Fahey: Paintings is illustrated with 92 plates and is accompanied by essays from Keith Connolly, founding member of No-Neck Blues Band, and the critic Bob Nickas.

Alessandro Rabottini, Andrea Bellini, Martin Clark (Eds.). Mousse Publishing.

Despite a prolific and diverse practice, Robert Overby (1935–93) remains one of the best-kept secrets in post-war American art. While rarely exhibiting during his lifetime, he nonetheless built up an extraordinary, multifaceted body of work encompassing sculpture, installation, painting, photography, print and collage.

This monograph is published on the occasion of “Robert Overby: Works 1969-1987”, the first survey exhibition of the artist’s work to be organized in Europe. Edited by Alessandro Rabottini —in collaboration with Andrea Bellini and Martin Clark—it has been conceived, from the outset, as a joint project of four partner institutions: Centre d’Art Contemporain, Genève; GAMeC – Galleria d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo; Bergen Kunsthall, and Le Consortium, Dijon.

GIRL ON CANVAS. Pola Dwurnik, Izabela Kaszyńska (Eds.).

GIRL ON CANVAS is an artbook project by Pola Dwurnik about painting and its reception. It will show a new life of Dwurnik’s paintings, one completely uncontorlled by the artist ? life born in minds and hearts of over 30 various personalities, who wrote texts for the publication. The book will be both openly personal and bravely intimate. Subversive, rascally and girlish. A subtle riot.

Painting is not dead. It is the viewers who are lifeless or stunned. Though not all and that is precisely what this book is about. It is about how a girl, painted on a canvas, can communicate with us.
I have long noticed that visitors to my studio discover interesting and surprising aspects and narratives in the paintings; often far from what I had intended. Motivated by a desire to preserve such unusual interpretations, I decided in December 2011 to create a collection of stories based on a selection of my works. I commissioned the texts from friends, artistic collaborators, people that think about the world much as I do, or simply those with whom I share a passion and respect for the art of painting. I deliberately chose not to invite other painters for their professional and technical perspective merits a separate publication. The various authors of Girl on Canvas hold different values and subscribe to a variety of worldviews, which means this book does not represent any single milieu. Rather, it brings together people from various walks of life through my paintings. Girl on Canvas is also a review of the first dozen or so years of my painting practice. Here, using the words of others, I am looking at my work from a distance so that I can continue developing as an artist in a conscious and responsible way. P.D.

A new art school? Statements by 30 artists, writers and architects.

Over the past two decades, Berlin’s growth into an international art metropolis has brought many people to the city. A number of these imports teach art – seemingly in all other cities but Berlin. The city’s two schools providing full-scale arts education – the Universität der Künste (UdK) and the Hochschule Berlin Weissensee – were established long before 1989.

Since 2006, if not before, discussions about the UdK’s organizational and administrative politics have flared up – generated, for one, by the stepping down of Stan Douglas and Daniel Richter as professors, a development the UdK attempted to atone for by appointing prominent professors such as Olafur Eliasson (whose assignment though ends March 2014). Weissensee has seen an outflow of professors with international profiles to teaching posts in other cities – Karin Sander has taught in Zurich since 2007, Katharina Grosse in Düsseldorf since 2010 – and the school has gone the way of appointing guest professors and lecturers.

Reputations, ratings and capacities for reform aside, the question still presents itself whether Berlin, given its manifold art scene, is in need of new models and directions for its art education. In 2006–7, the one-year temporary project unitednationsplaza underscorred the city’s desire for an informal art school mediating its larger, international art discourse.

Does the current situation suffice? If not, what form would a new institute ideally take? frieze d/e asked Monica BONVICINI, Helmut DRAXLER, Tom HOLERT and Robert KUDIELKA for extended responses to these questions. A set of additional artists and theorists also contributed shorter statements.

Finally, six artists and architects – Roger BUNDSCHUH, Eva GRUBINGER, Sabine HORNIG, Michelle HOWARD, KUEHN MALVEZZI, and Studio MIESSEN – were asked to submit concrete drafts for the design and structure of a new art academy.

And much more…
