Fondorientierte Ausstattung (Fund-oriented Equipment) Cosima von Bonin

Published by Hatje Cantz, Berlin, 2002, 192 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23 × 26 cm, English / German

Price: €22

Produced on the occasion of Cosima von Bomin’s exhibition Fondorientierte Ausstattung (Fund-oriented Equipment) at Neue Galerie, Graz, 27 October – 1 December, 2002.

“The fact that Poul Gernes once built a ship in order simply to burn it on the open sea, and that Bas Jan Ader set off alone in a small sailing boat in 1975 in order to cross the Atlantic in 60 days, a project that ended in his vanishing without trace, allows Cosima von Bonin’s “skerry cruiser”, stranded in all pomp and elegance here in Graz, to appear not only as a metaphor for unfettered proliferation and boundless world domination but, above all, as a symbol of failure, of misadventure, perhaps even of hubris.” Neue Galerie, Graz, press release. More information on the exhibition can be found here.

Que–Sah Manfred Pernice

Published by Verlag für moderne Kunst, Vienna, 2008, 208 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 25 × 30 cm, English/German

Price: €20

Monograph with comprehensive timeline, produced on the occasion of Manfred Pernice’s exhibition Que-Sah at The Neues Museum, Nuremberg, 25 April – 6 July, 2008.

The exhibition title – Que–Sah – refers to one volume of the Brockhaus encyclopaedia, where alphabetical arrangement gives systematic order to the highly varied lexical contents. For Pernice, “the first entry (Quebec conferences) and the last (Saho, Ethiopian stock farmers), like all the other conceptual phenomena in-between, are potential areas of artistic exploration.”
