Synopsis: German artist Albert Oehlen is closely associated with the Cologne art
scene and Neue Wilde movement. This catalogue, which was published
for his second solo exhibition, is a large fold-out poster designed by
the artist that contains ten loose, unbound images of works that were
on display, as well as the text of a conversation between Oehlen and
British artist Nigel Cooke. If you want to read [the paintings] it doesn't
say anything, explains Oehlen. It's slow and yet there are elements
that you recognize. They transmit a feeling, a critical feeling. A perfect
find for a collector of artists' books.
About the Author: Albert Oehlen is a contemporary German artist. His art concentrates on painting, installations and music. Closely associated with the Cologne art scene along with Martin Kippenberger among others, his work is related to the "Neue Wilde" movement. Oehlen comes to painting and art media out of the 70s interest in democratizing high art which allows him to view painting for example, as he says, "with a certain disdain, or at least a lack of respect. So I can romp around in it. And now that I'm having fun with it, I can take its pstualtes very seriously." Book designer and editor Hans Werner Holzwarth started as a typographer and communication designer, then co-led his own company for corporate design. Since 1992, Holzwarth has focused on book design, collaborating with Larry Clark, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Boris Mikhailov, Issey Miyake, Albert Oehlen, Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, Juergen Teller, Jeff Wall, John Waters, Christopher Wool, and many others. His many titles for TASCHEN include Taschen Collection, Martin Kippenberger, and Jeff Koons.
