Synopsis: Mirko Reisser (DAIM) looks back on a career already continuing for 25 years. The Roman publishing house DRAGO is now releasing an extensive review about his oeuvre: ?Mirko Reisser (DAIM) 1989-2014?.
Born 1971 in Lüneburg (Germany), currently living in Hamburg, Mirko Reisser has become known as an artist worldwide especially for his large size graffiti works in the 3D-style, in which he depicts his writer name DAIM in serial repetition and within processes of construction and deconstruction. The book Mirko Reisser (DAIM) 1989 ? 2014 is the most extensive publication of the artist?s ?uvre so far.
In 1989 he realized his first works in the public space ? in 2014 the artist looks back on his artistic career that spans 25 years. This book gives an all-embracing insight in the work of the artist for the first time, from the beginnings of his career that started with illegal works on the street, covering the time of his studies of fine arts in Switzerland up to the present, in which his works can mostly be seen in large scale museum presentations. This book shows the development of the works of the artist over a course of 25 years and also all important periods of his ?uvre in more than 350 colour images, of which some have never been published before. Murals, canvases, sculptures, editions, graphics and the later tapings can be seen. The images furthermore grant a look behind the scenes and show production processes of some of the artworks.
The texts contained in the publication are from renowned authors:
Johannes Stahl, art critic and curator, takes a look back at the historic roots of graffiti, in whose tradition the works of the artist certainly stand, but from whose liberation they also fight. By also explaining the technique of the artist, he makes it possible to look into the digital components that are involved in the process of realization of the works.
Belinda Grace Gardner, known from numerous essays about topics of contemporary art in relevant publications, approaches the work of the artist from an art historical point of view. She examines signature as content and builds bridges to protagonists of conceptual art such as On Kawara with his date paintings and Hanne Darboven, she also draws conclusions about the connection of the works to concrete poetry.
Arne Rautenberg, freelance author, artist and cultural journalist, not only discusses the works in his interview with Mirko Reisser, but also completes the text-contributions in this publication by giving an insight into the person that can be found behind them.
The foreword of the book is written by Rik Reinking, art collector, dealer and curator, that has been following Reissers career since its beginnings. In his text he illustrates the relationship between collector and artist.
Product Description: This book represents the most comprehensive collection of all the DAIM career, German artist active in the writing scene for a quarter of a century: 25 years. DAIM's programme comprises the construction, as well as deconstruction of a word. DAIM-graffitis can be seen as fixed images of a word-formation that is constantly threatening to reassemble, denying access, escaping the demands of tangibility and, thereby, remain free and sovereign. With every new DAIM-piece, Mirko Reisser takes possession of another piece of the world; and with every new DAIM-piece, the world takes possession of another piece of Mirko Reisser. "Shaping the character of letters and at the same time, discovering one's own" is his dictum. The character of the letters remains variable, abstruse, in short: ambivalent (and, thus, subversive). In between construction and de-construction, two- and three-dimensions, complexity of shape and simplification of content, between seclusion and an invitation to communicate, Mirko Reisser's works reveal the unfathomable rift of the world - at the crossing of which the beholder increasingly struggles.

Book Description Drago Arts & Communication, 2014. Book Condition: new. Roma, 2014; br., pp. 320, ill., cm 25,5x32. "[L'] uso del nome DAIM sta diventando sempre più complesso. Lo percepisco come una sorta di autoritratto, la mia intera personalità ha un impatto sulle opere. La mia evoluzione come essere umano corrisponde fortemente alla mia evoluzione come artista. [.] In questo modo, posso imparare qualcosa su me stesso come essere umano e anche a livello di personalità". (Mirko Reisser). Il libro "Mirko Reisser [DAIM] 1989-2014" è la pubblicazione sull'opera dell'artista più estesa finora. Se al 1989 risalgono i suoi primi lavori in spazi pubblici, nel 2014 l'artista guarda alla sua carriera artistica che si estende in un periodo di 25 anni. Questo libro fornisce per la prima volta uno sguardo complessivo sul lavoro dell'artista, dagli esordi segnati da opere illegali realizzate per strada, coprendo il periodo dei suoi studi di belle arti in Svizzera, fino al presente, in cui le sue opere possono essere ammirate in mostre museali di grandi dimensioni. Il libro presenta lo sviluppo delle opere dell'artista nel corso degli ultimi 25 anni attraverso più di 300 immagini a colori, di cui alcune mai pubblicate prima: muri, tele, sculture, edizioni, lavori grafici e quelli più recenti con nastro adesivo. Le immagini inoltre offrono uno sguardo al dietro le quinte e alle fasi di produzione di alcune opere. Bookseller Inventory # 2916240
