Spring for a Ground / Particle of Inch / Halted Paves / Quarters Magali Reus

Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2016, 80 pages, softcover w. plastic dust jacket, (colour & b/w ill.), 16 × 23 cm, English

Price: €25

In the spring of 2015, Magali Reus opened the first in a series of four exhibitions of new work co-commissioned and presented by SculptureCenter, New York; Hepworth Wakefield, England; Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster, Germany; and Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italy. The culmination of these collaborative projects is documented in this publication, marking an important chapter in the evolution of Reus’s work.

Renowned for her interest in the relationship between mass-produced articles and the human body in the context of today’s digital society, Magali Reus draws on a vast range of formal influences and references, from the domestic to the industrial, the functional to decorative, creating pieces that evolve as an accumulation and layering of sculptural details. For her, objects like fridges, padlocks, seating, and street curbs are not seen only as facilitators of our everyday actions, but also as physical receptacles for our bodies.

Carrier K.r.m. Mooney

Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2018, 164 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 14.8 × 21 cm, German / English

Price: €19 (Temporarily out of stock)

The work of K.R.M. Mooney inhabits an intermediary position between autonomous, abstract sculpture and context-specific projects. With carefully placed objects and spatial interventions they dissolve clear boundaries between interior and exterior, initiating a more comprehensive perception of objects, bodies and space that is always co-produced with the relational, environmental and embodied. K.R.M. Mooney, Carrier is published on occasion of the artists’ solo exhibition at Kunstverein Braunschweig’s Remise. It includes an introduction by Christina Lehnert, an interview between K.r.m. Mooney and McIntyre Parker, a statement by Nele Kaczmarek and a poem by Susanne M. Winterling.

Robert Kinmont

Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan, 2013, 80 pages (b/w ill.), stapled, 16.5 × 19.8 cm, English/German

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of two exhibitions of Robert Kinmont’s work; Listen, Kunsthaus Glarus, 10 February–5 May 2013 & Measure, Kunstlerhaus Bremen, 8 June–1 September, 2013.

Although the Californian conceptual artist Robert Kinmont’s work dates back to the late 1960s and the beginning of 1970s, this is the first monograph of his work. Kinmont is primarily concerned with his environment, the Californian landscape. He works with simple, mostly natural materials, and places them in relation to his body and his life. Probably his best known work, entitled 8 Natural Handstands (1969/2005), a series of photographs showing the artist doing handstands in abandoned landscapes, on the edges of cliffs, river beds, forests and deserts, was illustrated in Lucy Lippard’s book Six Years: The Dematerialization of the Art Object from 1966 to 1972. Not so long afterwards, Kinmont retreated from art practice for the following three decades.

A BIBLIOGRAPHY Allan Kaprow

Published by Mousse Publishing, Milan & Walther Konig, Köln, 2012, 126 pages (colour & b/w ill.), softcover, 23 × 17 cm, English

Price: €75

This bibliography catalogues and illustrates, with a wide selection of images, Allan Kaprow’s entire body of published work: from his first artist’s book in 1962, to his last anthological projects in the 1990s. This lesser-known side of his oeuvre unfolds through 32 books, booklets, and pamphlets produced over a period of 40 years. Kaprow’s work moved along two parallel tracks: Happenings—of which he was an unchallenged pioneer, starting in the 1950s—and “Activity Booklets,” which functioned as a tool to help people understand and experience these performances.

The layout of his books, the originality of their structure, the literary stature of their texts, and their aesthetic quality as objects shifted his exploration of print into a higher realm, where the book became a fully-fledged work of art.
