Annette Wehrmann : Luftschlangentexte
Reading from the book by Judith Hopf and Ina Wudtke
Music by HC Dany and Nedalot

About the book:

Annette Wehrmann – Luftschlangentexte

Dieses Buch, das bisher nur in wenigen handgebundenen Exemplaren existierte, versammelt drei der Texte, die die Grundlagen für Annette Wehrmanns Performances bildeten.

Annette Wehrmann, die jung 2010 starb, lebte vor allem in Hamburg. Sie war ein wichtiger Teil der Künstlergeneration, die in den 90er Jahren in Erscheinung trat, und mit einem wenig akademischen und weitgefassten Kunstbegriff zu dem beitrugen, was die Kunstszene Berlins nach dem Fall der Mauer ausmachte, und bis heute zum Bild Berlins als Kunstzentrum beiträgt.
Die Texte kommentieren diese Jahre, wie sie es auch selbst in ihren Performances tat. Ihre Beobachtungen reichen von der politischen Entwicklung, über alltägliche Begebenheiten, zu den Ausstellungen und Kunstaktionen dieser Jahre. Mit trockenem Humor und unvorhersehbaren Wendungen verwebt sie diese Beobachtungen in ihre eigentlichsten Interessensfelder, utopische Gesellschaftsentwürfe, Sci-Fi und Feminismus.
Dieses Buch gibt einen ersten Einblick in ihr Schreiben. Der Text hat die Form eines Tagebuches, war aber immer an eine Öffentlichkeit gerichtet. Es konfrontiert die Leser mit den Bedingungen eines Künstlerlebens, mit einer Künstlerin, deren Aufmerksamkeit zur Grundlage für ihr Werk wird.

Anlässlich der Präsentation in Berlin lesen die Berliner Künstlerinnen Judith Hopf und Ina Wudtke, nahe Freundinnen der Autorin, aus dem Buch.

Annette Wehrmann Luftschlangentexte

This book, having been until now available only in a few hand-bound copies, distributed directly by the artist, consists of three texts, basis of three of Annette Wehrmann‘s performances. In these performances the texts, typed on paper blow-outs, would be read aloud by Annette Wehrmann, climbing and crawling through the space.
Annette Wehrmann, conceptual sculptor, political artist, activist for useless time and space died young, in 2010. She had an important position in her generation, among the artists who emerged in the 90ies and who with their un-academic and widespread activities formed what became the art-scene of post-wall Berlin, where she was a frequent visitor, while mostly living in Hamburg.
The texts, as did her performances, comment on these years. With dry humour and unexpected twists Annette Wehrmann observes the political development, the daily live and the exhibitions and art events of the 90ies and reflects them through her own fields of interest, utopian literature, sci-fi and feminism.
The book presents a first insight in her writings. While the texts take the form of a diary, they were always intended to be published. They speak to the reader about the life of an artist, for whom every observation becomes material for her work.

On the occasion of the presentation of Annette Wehrmann – Luftschlangentexte, Berlin based artists Judith Hopf and Ina Wudtke, close friends of Annette Wehrmann, will read from the book. (book and reading are in german)

Join us to celebrate Claudia Wieser’s FURNITURE book release, tomorrow Saturday July 27, in Berlin.
Start 7pm

About the book:

FURNITURE

“This publication appears on the occasion of Claudia Wieser’s exhibition FURNITURE in KIOSK (6 October – 18 November 2012). The title refers directly at issues that lie at the very heart of Wieser’s work: what is the status of sculptures that were designed as objects? The artist’s body of work is built around this question and explores the boundaries between autonomous and applied art. FURNITURE brought together an ensemble of drawings, ceramic and wooden sculptures, and a spatial collage, instigating a dialogue between them and explicitly relating them to the architectural context of the exhibition space.” – Liene Aerts & Wim Waelput

Edited by Wim Waelput and Claudia Wieser
Authors include Liene Aerts, Alexander Garcia Düttmann, Zoë Gray, Wim Waelput

58IC. Thobias Faldt. Own Books.

Book for volume 2 & 3 in the project 581C together with photographer Thobias Fäldt. The book has no defined beginning or end. Instead of the typical linear structure, the book aims to give the reader a feeling of a circular structure. All images in the book are therefore printed twice but appear in different surroundings. The only text on the actual book is printed on the books sides and is in itself a loop, to strengthen the circular concept. The packaging is printed with a pattern made out of the typographies four different building blocks.

Size: 21.4 x 30 cm
