Private Book 4 Lee Lozano

Published by Karma Publications, New York, 2018, 186 pages, spiral-bound (colour & b/w ill.), 8 × 13 cm, English

Price: €25

This is the fourth volume in Karma’s 11-volume facsimile printing of Lee Lozano’s Private Book project. It is primarily a calendar of Lozano’s personal, artistic and chemical interactions in 1969-1970. A prolific writer and documenter of both her art and her relationships, the public and private, the painter Lee Lozano (1930–99) kept a series of personal journals from 1968 to 1970 while living in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. In 1972 she rigorously edited these books, thus completing the project. Eleven of these private books survive, containing notes on her work, detailed interactions with artist friends and commentary on the alienations of gender politics, as well as philosophical queries into art’s role in society and humorous asides from daily life.

Drawings 1958–64 Lee Lozano

Published by Karma Publications, New York, 2021, 640 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 18.4 × 22.8 cm, English

Price: €79

Produced on the occasion of Lee Lozano, Drawings 1959-64 at Karma, New York, July 12–August 13, 2021.

Lozano’s drawings register a social consciousness that was radical for its time and continues to be groundbreaking in the present day. Her transgressive and experimental illustrations dissect institutionalized power, behavioral propriety, and gender socialization with zealous intensity. Challenging norms of respectability, Lozano’s works are “anti-skill, antisocial, antithetical, a “manly,” macho display, figured in the touch and tone as much as in the innuendos and imagery,” as Tamar Garb aptly notes.

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.

The Jahresring series is one of the longest continually published annual journals for contemporary art in Germany. The 61st edition is a reader and visual sampler with contributions from visual artists, writers, poets, musicians, choreographers, and designers. Bringing together a discursive array of forms and timbres, it takes an intertextual and interdisciplinary approach to exploring some contemporary cultural resonances with respect to gender and sexuality. In this sense, a “PS” or postscript might be understood as a place where relations or realities not explicitly stated in the main body of any given text, but nevertheless underpinning them, are revealed. A “PS” is a place of interpersonal agency; a compelling textual gesture that might add a “by the way” and an “also” and a “you know what we’re really talking about.” By its nature, a “PS” is contextualized and contextualizing. Though it may parade as the last word, it never is.

The Jahresring is published annually on behalf of Kulturkreis der deutschen Wirtschaft im BDI e.V.
