Brian Eno

Brian Eno was the first institutional solo exhibition by Scottish artist Lucy McKenzie at the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein, February 23 – April 27, 2003.

The installation of trompe l’oeil murals and screen-printed posters as well as drawings, sound and light took the symbolic figure Brian Eno as its starting point. As an extraordinary musician, educator, visual artist and “communications advisor” to British New Labor, Eno is emblematic of common debates about avant-garde and quality. Lucy McKenzie used this discourse as a background for her own interpretations of such questions, especially questions that concern functionalism.

Bruce Hainley
Published by Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, 2003, 32 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 16.5 × 22.8 cm, English
Price: €13 (Out of stock)

Taking its title from the Elaine May’s 1987 film Ishtar, this group exhibition curated by Los Angeles-based critic Bruce Hainley touches on many of the same interests and dichotomies: a comedy that is political and analytical at the same time; an abstraction but also a representation; and a cultural production outside of much discourse. The catalogue traces the attempt to create an informed dialogue for artwork that evades easy classifications and readymade discussions of abstraction vs. representation. Featured artists include: Brian Calvin, Samara Caughey, Lecia Dole-Recio, Trisha Donnelly, Vincent Fecteau, Richard Hawkins, Larry Johnson, Patrick Hill, Cady Noland, Sturtevant.

Der Spiegel 1989–1991
Isa Genzken
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2003, 248 pages (b/w ill.), 30.5 × 21.5 cm, English
Price: €55 (Out of stock)

Isa Genzken’s Der Spiegel 1989–1991 consists of 121 reproductions of black-and-white photographs cut out of the influential German newsweekly Der Spiegel over a period of three years. The images are presented starkly, bereft of photo credits or captions: having been freed from their usual meaning-giving context, the images assume a mystery and free-floating universality as the viewer unconsciously struggles to recall the specificity of the sensational news story and headline to which they were once attached. The book is produced in a limited edition of 700 numbered copies.
