Edward Kienholz, an often over looked artist of the Beat Generation, was more appreciated in Europe than in his native America. His work, usually in collaboration with his wife & partner Nancy Reddin Kienholz, was highly critical of modern American life.

This volume lavishly documents his assemblage and installation works.

Industrial photographers Bernd & Hilla Becher were all about documentation- allowing the structures in their spaces to do the speaking. In The Mill photographer Matthias Schaller takes the reader on an intimate and thorough tour of their live/work studio.

Following in the documentation tradition of the Becher’s each shot of Schaller’s, beginning with the ivy covered entrance, through the stackably-organized work area and calm living spaces, allows space for the artist’s objects to do the speaking.

Gego: Line as Object

Splendid new catalogue on the drawings and sculptural work of the Venezuelan artist and student of the architect Paul Bonatz.

Many of the works of Gego (1912-1994) can be turned around, walked around or walked through, so that their composition seems to be constantly changing. Filigreed and minimal, so light that they almost seem to dance, her grid sculptures can be hung like reliefs in front of walls or positioned freely in space. Gego created her three-dimensional installations out of wire, ropes or aluminum bars, or sometimes with found materials such as clothes hangers or metal springs. Before emigrating in 1939, Gertrud Goldschmidt (Gego) studied architecture at the Technische Hochschule in Stuttgart under Paul Bonatz, and, as a result, the construction of structures and the shaping of space took on great significance in her artistic work, which takes line as a theme in its own right. This publication provides insight into the artist’s drawings and sculptural work and is the first to shed light on how Gego’s studies influenced her work.
