This publication is made in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the amendment of the Danish constitution. The 1915-constitution gave Danish women the right to vote and stand for election. But also a another group of people got the right to vote in 1915, men and women who did not own household for example people in agriculture, servants or apprentices and journeymen in the trade and craft. People who are classified as legally incapacitated still do not have the vote, and Danish citizenship is still a condition for voting or being a candidate in general elections.

Fatal Kadath Fatal (Special edition). Henning Bohl. BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE & Motto Books.

Bohl has previously employed a wide variety of media accommodating found materials and taking the form of free-standing sculpture, sculptural reliefs, friezes, collages, prints, posters and videos. Bohl’s most recent work consists of drawings that draw references from a wide variety of popular and archetypal imagery familiar to him from his adolescence. They incorporate styles learned from, amongst other things, Aubrey Beardsely (1872 – 1898), Métal Hurlant comic books (1974 – 2004) and Blair Reynolds and other graphic artists associated with Pagan Publishing (1990 – 1993). As with his previous works, these drawings employ modest yet very specific materials.

The title of this book references a mythical peak where gods dwell ‘in the cold waste where no man treads’ described in H.P.Lovecraft’s ‘The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath’ (1926/27). Lovecraft’s novel itself drew from William Beckford’s gothic horror ‘Vathek’ (1786), Robert W. Chambers’ ‘The King in Yellow’ (1895) and the novels and short stories of Lord Dunsany (Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett, 18th Baron of Dunsany, 1878 – 1957).

Henning Bohl (b.1975, Oldenburg, Germany) currently lives and works in Hamburg. He studied at the Kunsthochschule, Kassel and at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main where he completed his studies in 2004. There have been recent public exhibitions of his work at Kunsthalle Nürnberg and Berlinische Galerie (2013) Pro Choice, Vienna (2012); Kunstverein Hamburg (2011); Artpace, San Antonio and Cubitt, London (2010); Grazer Kunstverein and Staatliche Kunsthalle, Baden-Baden (2009) and at the Oldenburger Kunstverein (2008). His work was recently presented at the Carnegie International, Pittsburgh (2013) and has also been included in group exhibitions at venues including the Kunsthalle Bonn and Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2013) Halle für Kunst, Lüneburg (2012); Portikus, Frankfurt am Main and Seattle Art Museum (2011); Kunstverein Schattendorf; Kunstverein Hannover and CCA Andratx , Mallorca (2010); White Columns, New York and Sammlung Grässlin, St. Georgen (2009). He is represented by Galerie Karin Guenther in Hamburg; Galerie Meyer Kainer in Vienna; Casey Kaplan in New York and Galerie Johann König in Berlin.

on distance is a volume of photographs by Heinz Peter Knes representing a small selection from his extensive archive of travel photography dating back to 2010. Unlike a conventional approach to a personal travel log, indexing places and situations, ordered according to chronologies or geographies, the photos and their ordering reflect upon broader cultural themes driven by personal interests, desires, and chance. Knes, in conversation with Julie Ault, ordered the images according to subjective and associative categories influenced by Warburg’s “law of the good neighbor”, Warburg’s principal of library organization based on the exchange and mutual engagement between books placed next to each other, rather than classical groupings that branch off from general categories such as “fine art” or “photography.” on distance opens up a similar research into the possible languages that emerge within images when they are allowed to be read without restraints of preconceived modes of categorizing knowledge and experience.

The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition: mothertongue by Danh Vo, The Danish Pavilion, 56th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, May 9 – November 22, 2015. The publication is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
