Matthew Benedict: The Mage’s Pantry

2008

Texts by Charles Beyer, Nayland Blake, and Oliver Zybok

Published by Hatje Cantz


Some of the seemingly nostalgic works by Matthew Benedict recall illustrations from old children’s books, with pirates, saints, and Freemasons recurrently populating his paintings, photographs, embroidered pieces, and sculptures. The quiet, beautiful, and yet uncanny dreamworld of his symbolic figures, and his allegorical references to literature or history, deliberately elude comprehension in the mind of the uninitiated observer. This is the first monograph to examine Benedict's entire oeuvre, as well as its references to illustrative and decorative conventions and techniques.

Michael Buthe: Retrospective

2015

Texts by Okwui Enwezor, Fanni Fetzer, Philippe Van Cauteren, Martin Germann, Dominik Müller, Heinz Stahlhut, and Ulrich Wilmes

Published by Hatje Cantz


Edited by Kunstmuseum Lucerne, S.M.A.K., Ghent, and Haus der Kunst, Munich, published on the occasion of Buthe's recent retrospective.Like a lived life, Buthe believed that the artwork too should constantly transform. This guiding idea is revealed not only in the history of the origins of specific works but also in Michael Buthe’s oeuvre as a whole. Always joyfully drawing on stimuli from all directions, he began with works that came from Art Informel and interlaced the formal rigor or geometric abstraction. Then, he created works that are sparse and liberated from earthly gravity, deriving their inspiration from the visions of both Western and Eastern mystics…

Running to Stand Still: Stefan Kürten

Texts by Simone Scholten

Published by Diese Publikation


Stefan Kürten has chosen this paradoxical phrase as the title for the companion publication to his exhibition at the Galerie der Stadt Backnang, which provides a comprehensive look at his work in recent years. Stefan Kürten has consistently devoted himself to the thematic complex of private life for many years. With all of the emotional significance given to the private retreat space, it is no wonder that dwellings seem to turn all by themselves into surfaces for the projection of personal dreams and notions of happiness.

Stefan Kürten: Here Comes the Night

2014

Texts by Stephan Berg and Oliver Zybok

Published by Ostfildern: Hatje Cantz


“Even though the houses and gardens that distinguish my paintings are drawn from real houses and gardens, taken from my own photos, books, and magazines, they are somehow transformed into the stuff of daydreams or nightmares. They are devoid of human presence, the apparent idyll feels isolated to the point of oppression. Nonetheless, there seem to be some sort of a presence, like a hidden secret, something untold and left to our imaginations.” – Stefan Kürten

Stefan Kürten: Blue days, black nights

2004

Texts by David Frankel and David Gray

Published by Alexander and Bonin, Hosfelt Gallery, Galerie Michael Cosar, and Galerie Ute Parduhn


The buildings so often the subjects of Kürten’s painting come in a range of twentieth-century manners, sometimes stocked with the cold glass and flat surfaces of modernism, sometimes more simple and friendly, in the style of the suburb or garden city. These pictures often treat some balance between the human home and nature. There are never any people in Kürten’s paintings, which makes their utopianism both a little easier to pull off and a little unreal. Distant, still - the work describes nothing attainable, at least not in this life.

Sylvia Plimack Mangold: Landscape and Trees

2012

Texts by Cheryl Brutvan

Published by the Norton Museum of Art


Sylvia Plimack Mangold: Landscape and Trees is the second exhibition of RAW (Recognition of Art by Women). This collection presents for the first time an exhibition of the remarkable paintings and works on paper that Sylvia Plimack Mangold has created over a thirty year period. The resulting compositions, a result of her devoted observation of the trees surrounding her home and studio, are less a document than a manifestation of intangible qualities, including the experience of looking and the feeling of time passing.

Alexander and Bonin: Sylvia Plimack Mangold

Texts by Helen Molesworth

Published by Alexander and Bonin


For the past twenty years Sylvia Plimack Mangold has been painting the trees on her land in Washingtonville, New York. Plimack Mangold’s practice is daily, seasonal, and annual; to look at the whole of her oeuvre is to feel the coexistence of linear and cyclical time. Hence the tree paintings permit an exploration of variation and difference. They privilege change over stasis, or, to put it more precisely, they make an issue of the dialectical tension between change and stasis.

Natural Sympathies: Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Lovis Corinth Works on Paper

Natural Sympathies: Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Lovis Corinth Works on Paper

2009

Texts by Ann Finholt

Published by Alexander and Bonin


For nearly 30 years, contemporary artist Sylvia Plimack Mangold has investigated the natural setting surrounding her home in the Hudson Valley region of New York. Although she painted the first landscape of her professional career in 1977, the imagery of trees that has absorbed her for the past several decades emerged definitively in the mid-1980s. The shift in subject matter marked a turning point in Plimack Mangold’s work and closely coincided with her discovery of the oeuvre of artist Lovis Corinth (1858-1925). Corinth was a critical influence and inspiration and she turned her attention to individual trees, and in Natural Sympathies, prints, drawings, and watercolors by Plimack Mangold executed during the past twenty-five years and prints and drawing by Corinth from her collection illuminate the evolution of Plimack Mangold’s landscape investigations and artistic working process in the context of her personal encounter with Corinth.

Paul Thek in Process

2012

Texts by Susanne Neubauer

Published by JRP Ringier


Paul Thek in Process evolves out of the discovery of an unrealized publication project initiated while installing his first space-filling environment, Pyramid/A Work in Progress at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, in the winter of 1971, which was to have been released for documenta 5. Paul Thek in Process evaluates the complex organizational and conceptual task of the installation’s eventual realization, and offers an exhibition history written with a view from the inside, with particular attention paid to the status of the ephemeral objects that remain as contingent representatives of the lost work. The book contains a treasure trove of previously unpublished photographs recording the installation at the Moderna Museet, as well as all of the surviving correspondence between Thek and the museum relating to the conception of the show, work-related ephemera, and press coverage of the exhibition.
