WALTER PICHLER: | DRAWINGS, SCULPTURE ,BUILDINGS Publisher: Princeton Architectural Press, 1997 Edition: 1st Edition Hardcover | 9.5 x 1 x 11.2 inches Language: English ISBN 10: 0910413975 DESCRIPTION: Austrian artist Walter Pichler is one of the most original and, paradoxically, least-known influences on contemporary architecture. From his 1965 exhibition with Hans Hollein to his recent exhibitions at the Hirshhorn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. Pichler has remained a worldwide inspiration to architects as diverse as Morphosis, Arata Isozaki, Coop Himmelblau, Peter Wilson, and Neil Denari. Peter Cook writes, "The power of Pichler's drawings is undeniable [with] their oscillations between tight precision and atmospheric scribbles.... As with other Austrian art, Pichler's is highly symbolic, ritualistic, even shocking." Pichler's intensely energetic drawings form the basis of his sculptures and subsequently the architecture built to house them, blurring the distinction between art and architecture. Friedrich Achleitner's introductory essay explores Pichler's work in relation to his home in St. Martin. Walter Pichler: Drawings, Sculpture, Buildings makes known to a wider audience the beautiful and compelling work of this important European artist.

Hannah Höch | The Photomontages Publisher: Walker Art Center, 1996 Edition: 1st Edition Hardcover | 9.2 x 1 x 12 inches Language: English ISBN 0935640525 DESCRIPTION: A pioneer in the medium of photomontage, Hannah Hoch (1889-1978) was the sole female member of the Berlin Dada movement and continued to produce innovative works well into the 1970s. In the decade and a half since her death, a new generation of scholars has focused its attention on her elegant dissection of the representation of women in the mass media during the Weimar era. Here, in the first comprehensive survey of her work by an American museum, authors Peter Boswell, Maria Makela, and Carolyn Lanchner survey the full scope of Hoch's half-century of experimentation in photomontage - from her politically charged early works and intimate psychological portraits of the Weimar era to her later forays into surrealism and abstraction. This beautifully designed catalogue presents more than l00 color plates and offers new insights into the life and career of this extraordinary artist.
