The American artist Paul Chan has gained international acclaim for
his video work, drawings and installations that blend a novel
drafting aesthetic with philosophical reflections on politics,
religion, sex and life. This beautifully produced monograph,
published on the occasion of Chan's highly anticipated one-person
exhibition at New York's recently unveiled New Museum of
Contemporary Art, presents the first significant overview of Chan's
work. Spanning from the late 1990s through today, it is named for
Chan's most recent project, "The 7 Lights" (2005-07), a series of
large-scale digital projections and drawings that "hallucinate" the
Seven Days of Creation.
Born in middle-class Philadelphia in the 1940s, Howardena Pindell came of age during the Civil Rights movement. As an African-American woman artist, making her way in the world provided Pindell with source material to inspire her work. This book examines every facet of Pindell's impressive career to date. Since the 1960s, she has used materials such as glitter, talcum powder, and perfume to stretch the boundaries of traditional canvas painting. She has also infused her work with traces of her labor, such as obsessively affixing dots of pigment and circles made with an ordinary hole punch tool. After a car crash in 1979 left her with short-term amnesia, Pindell's work looked beyond the painting studio to explore a wide range of subjects, including the personal and diaristic as well as the social and political. This monograph also highlights Pindell's work with photography, film, and performance. Excerpts from the artist's writing, in particular her critique of the art world and her responses to feminism and racial politics, provide prescient commentary in light of conversations around equality and inclusion today.
In our accelerated era of "faster," "better," "farther," "higher," this comprehensive catalogue of the media art of the world-renowned Goetz Collection in Munich offers not only a survey of much of the most important film and video work to have been made over the last 15 years, but also a vision of how our habit of seeing and experiencing the world--in perpetual fast forward mode--has come out of our own cultural acceleration. The works brought together in this 532-page volume are at once an expression of and a reaction to the hyper-speed of our times. They span from the slow-motion images in David Claerbout's still life-like landscape portrait, "Ruurlo, Bocurloscheweg 1910," to the rhythmic-dynamic disco tempo of Wolfgang Tillmans's "Lights (Body)." This superb collection includes videos, video installations and films by Matthew Barney, Olaf Breuning, Tracey Emin, Fischli & Weiss, Rodney Graham, Mona Hatoum, Pierre Huyghe, Isaac Julien, Mike Kelley, Sharon Lockhart, Sarah Morris, Raymond Pettibon, Pipilotti Rist, Anri Sala, Ann-Sofi Siden, Diana Thater and others.

Through her work, Cristina Lucas reminds us that art is not just a means of seduction, but also a way to make us aware of what is happening in our society. She turns democracy and the mechanisms of power into the main content of her work and analyses fundamental structures in politics and economics, thereby revealing the contradictions existing between the official view of history, the actual history and the collective memory. In her works, she studies cultural, social and political power structures, which she openly criticises in a way often not lacking in sense of humour. Rather than looking for easy answers, Cristina Lucas compels us to ask the right questions. This book accompanies an exhibition, to be held in Luxembourg at the Luxembourg Mudam (8 October 2016 - 14 May 2017); and Linz, Austria, at the Center for Contemporary Art (2 December 2016 - 30 April 2017).
