Price: €36

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Julie Ault, Martin Beck: Installation at Secession, Vienna, 22 September–12 November, 2006.

The exhibition consisted of an arrangement of individually and collaboratively authored installation fixtures, arenas, and works that functioned as the display architecture produced specifically for the Secession’s space.

The vocabulary inscribed by Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ series of photographs Untitled (Natural History)—Patriot, Historian, Ranchman, Scientist, Soldier, Humanitarian, Author, Conservationist, Naturalist, Scholar, Explorer, and Statesman parenthesized the exhibition. The photographs were hung on the gallery’s permanent walls.

Art of The Eighties and Seventies
Michael Stevenson
Published by Revolver Publishing, Berlin, 2006, 96 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 24 × 32 cm, English / German
Price: €28

Produced on the occasion of Michael Stevenson’s 2006 exhibition, Art of the Eighties and Seventies at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, referencing both Hans Hollein’s postmodern design of the museum and the 1978 Tehran gallery exhibition ‘Gold Bricks’, on short display during the outbreak of the revolution – a sculptural work by Armenian artist Zadik Zadikian which disappeared without a trace through looting. This exhibition was the first and only show of a gallery that Toni Shafrazi, who later became successful in New York, opened in Tehran in 1978.

Western Recording
Mathias Poledna
Published by Witte de With, Rotterdam, 2006, 206 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 23 cm, English / German / Dutch
Price: €24

Mathias Poledna’s artistic practice is informed by historical research, archives and collections. His film Western Recording shows a recording session in the legendary Studio 3 at United Western Recorders, a studio that has remained largely unchanged since the early 1960s because of its special sound. From the multiple referential fields alluded to by this setting, as well as the inherent tension between its current function and historical significance, Poledna creates a hybrid historical constellation that combines a reinterpretation of the 1969 song “City Life” along with the appearance, the habitus, and the performance of the musicians.

Designed by Mathias Poledna.
