KEMPENS INFORMATIEBLAD. SONDERAUSGABE KUNSTVEREIN MÜNCHEN Jef Geys

Published by Kunstverein München, München & Jef Geys, Balen, 2001, 12 pages, (colour & b/w ill.), 29.2 × 44.5 cm, German

Price: €18

Kempens Informatieblad, was a newspaper published by Belgian artist Jef Geys between 1971 and 2018.

Since the early 1960s, in addition to his interlocking artistic and pedagogical work, Geys was also involved in the production and distribution of a local newspaper, the Kempisch Reklaamblad, on whose pages he began to publish various textual and pictorial material among the advertisements placed therein. After it was discontinued, Geys took over the paper and continued it under his own direction as Kempens Informatieblad.

Functioning as an alternative to the conventional artist catalog, the issues, over 50 in total, were mostly published in connection with his exhibitions. As an information system directed by the artist, it successively developed into a kind of meta-medium within his practice, through which he himself organized his representation and mediation – beyond the exhibition context.

Performance Artists Talking in the Eighties Linda M. Montano

Published by University of California Press, Berkeley, 2001, 553 pages (b/w ill.), 15.3 × 22.7 cm, English

Price: €36

Performance artist Linda Montano invited other performance artists to consider how early events associated with sex, food, money/fame, or death/ritual resurfaced in their later work. The result is an original and compelling talking performance that documents the production of art in an important and often misunderstood community.

Among the more than 100 artists Montano interviewed from 1979 to 1989 were John Cage, Lorraine O’Grady, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Stuart Sherman, Martha Rosler, Joan Jonas, Faith Ringgold, Dick Higgins, Allan Kaprow, Meredith Monk, Adrian Piper, Carolee Schneemann and Chris Burden. Her discussions with them focused on the relationship between art and life, history and memory, the individual and society, and the potential for individual and social change.

87º John Knight

Published by Storm King Art Center, New Windsor, 2001, 35 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 19.8 × 22.6 cm, English

Price: €16

Produced to accompany John Knight’s site-specific project 87º at the Storm King Art Center. Installed on Storm King’s Museum Hill, it comprised of a telescope—similar to those used by tourists at scenic overlooks—and the view through the telescope’s lens. When directed toward the 87 degrees of the work’s title, the telescope focuses in on a rounded water tower, erected by the former Star Expansion Company in 1958, just south of Storm King’s property. In prioritizing this viewpoint, Knight conceptually connects Storm King’s pastoral hills with the industrial production just beyond them. Star Expansion Company, which manufactured industrial fasteners, was owned and operated by the family that founded Storm King.
