Thomas Bayrle - All-in-One
2013, 223 pages with 150 images, hardback
"All-in-One" represents a first attempt at offering an overview of Thomas Bayrle's multifaceted practice, from his first kinetic machines to the recent engine installations. Amply illustrated, the catalogue highlights not only the serigraphies and super-images Bayrle is perhaps best known for, but also his sculptures, his early work as a graphic designer and publisher (included is an illustrated bibliography of all of Bayrle's artist books), his videos, as well as samples from his own texts. Holding together this expansive approach are the concerns that have always animated his work: consumerism and consumer society, political propaganda, weaves and patterns, movement, sexuality, religion.
Gerhard Richter- Scheiben und Strips
2013, ed by B.H.D Buchloh, 72 pages with 10 images, paperback, German
The volume brings two reflections by Benjamin H.D. Buchloh on the work of Richter, in which he links the theme of the panes of glass / glass panes with the motif of the "strips".
For his Strips series, which he began in 2011, Richter digitally dissected his 1990 Abstract Painting (724-4) into 4,096 sections, and mirrors, multiplies and recombines these details, finally printing them as pictures composed of horizontal stripes, in various formats up to 10 metres in length.
