Educational Complex
Published by Generali Foundation, Vienna, 1997, 144 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 16.5 × 23 cm, German / English
Price: €15

This publication documents the exhibition Educational Complex focussing on various issues related to a topic also addressed in a lecture series. In the show he organized, the artist Rainer Ganahl tries to locate where art finds its abhorred Other, namely, in education and its institutions. Educational policy, the intellectualization of art, with the overlapping of art and critical discourse figures significantly just as the exhibition is a medium.

Texts by Ingvild Birkhan, Sabine Breitwieser, Tom McDonough, Rainer Ganahl, Mike Kelley and Edward W. Said.

Tetsumi Kudo
Published by Fridericianum, Kassel & Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2010, 356 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 19.5 × 26 cm, English / German
Price: €39

Bottled humanism, colored neon contaminations, tattered flaps of skin, and limp penises bring humanist self-assurance crashing to the ground. What appears as poison or chemical devastation is in fact an appeal to understand metamorphosis as a state of being. Over a period of three decades, from the mid-1950s to the late 1980s, the Japanese artist Tetsumi Kudo created a consistent body of work that serves as a model for contemporary conceptual approaches of Posthumanism and the New Materialism. The catalogue brings together contributions by artists and theorists and documents Kudo’s comprehensive oeuvre in work and archive images as well as exhibition views from the retrospective at the Fridericianum (2016). Texts from Mike Kelley, Antje Krause-Wahl, Susanne Pfeffer & Reiko Tomii. Designed by Dan Solbach.
