Hamlet, mise-en-scène Extra Trouble—Jack Smith in Frankfurt

Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015, 288 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21.6 × 27.9 cm, English

Price: €20

This publication brings together extensive material from Hamlet, mise-en-scène presented at Portikus, along with recently restored as well as never-published stills, drawings, and writings by American filmmaker and artist Jack Smith, related to his film Hamlet in the Rented World (A Fragment) (1970–73).

Hamlet, mise-en-scène, directed by Mark von Schlegell, was an adaptation that retold Shakespeare’s most abused tragedy while channeling the ghost of Jack Smith. The two-night rendition of Hamlet was performed by members of Städelschule’s Pure Fiction seminar, presented here alongside a rare selection of works by Smith, both from private collections and from the Jack Smith Archive.

Cologne Art Fair, 1977 Jack Smith

Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2010, fold out poster (colour & b/w ill.), 19.7 × 21 cm (folded) 119.2 × 84 cm (unfolded), English

Price: €15

Jack Smith presented his performance Irrational Landlordism of Bagdad as part of the Cologne Art Fair fringe in the summer of 1977. Many other events were documented photographically and can now be found in the Cologne Art Fair archives – not so Smith’s performance. This poster publication, edited by Michael Krebber, shows him in his fair stall and during his performance for the first time. The pictures are perfect documents of a completely eccentric transaction by this pioneering director and performance artist.

Straying from the Line

Published by the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin, 2019, unpaginated (colour & b/w ill.), 14.7 × 21 cm, German

Price: €12 (Out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of Straying from the Line at the Schinkel Pavillon from 13. April – 28. July 2019

Straying from the Line was dedicated to a fundamentally expanded perspective on the multiplicity of feminist tendencies in the art of the last 100 years. Instead of presenting a straight narrative of feminist art as a generation- and/or identity-specific style, the exhibition charted a network of multiple references, drawing connections between aesthetically and politically, geographically and historically heterogeneous perspectives.
