Culturescapes 1976 – 1984 Braco Dimitrijević

Published by Kunsthalle Bern, Bern, 1984, 144 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 22 × 27 cm, German

Price: €35

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Braco Dimitrijević, Culturescapes 1976 – 1984 at Museum Ludwig, Köln, 30 march – 6 May, 1984, and Kunsthalle Bern, 15 June – 15 August, 1984.

Braco Dimitrijević gained an international reputation in the seventies with his Casual passer-by series, in which gigantic photo portraits of anonymous people were displayed on prominent facades and billboards in European and American cities. The artist also mimicked other ways of glorifying important persons by building monuments to passers-by and installing memorial plaques in honour of anonymous citizens.

In the mid-seventies he started incorporating in his installations original paintings borrowed from museum collections. The Triptychos Post Historicus, realized in numerous museums around the world, unite in a harmonious synthesis high art, everyday objects, and fruit. The artist’s statement “Louvre is my studio, street is my museum” expresses both the dialectical and transgressive nature of his oeuvre.

Section 34, 2nd Set, 1983 Ian Wilson

Published by Art Metropole/David Bellman, Toronto, 1984, unpaginated, 14 × 21.5 cm, English

Price: €20 (Out of stock)

Ian Wilson has been exploring the aesthetic potential of spoken language since the late 1960s. His ongoing body of work—beginning with “oral communication” and eventually including his signature Discussions—began in 1968 with the spoken word “time”.

Over the course of the 1970s, his discussions took on a more formal character, and his interests shifted towards ‘The Known and Unknown’, based on Plato’s ‘The Parmenides’. In contrast to a ‘performance’, during a discussion the audience can actively take part in realising the concept of ‘oral communication’. Wilson does not want the discussion to be recorded either on film or audio. Wilson summarises the core of these discussions in a book series entitled ‘section’.
