Art of The Eighties and Seventies Michael Stevenson

Published by Revolver Publishing, Berlin, 2006, 96 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 24 × 32 cm, English / German

Price: €28

Produced on the occasion of Michael Stevenson’s 2006 exhibition, Art of the Eighties and Seventies at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, referencing both Hans Hollein’s postmodern design of the museum and the 1978 Tehran gallery exhibition ‘Gold Bricks’, on short display during the outbreak of the revolution – a sculptural work by Armenian artist Zadik Zadikian which disappeared without a trace through looting. This exhibition was the first and only show of a gallery that Toni Shafrazi, who later became successful in New York, opened in Tehran in 1978.

Disproof Does Not Equal Disbelief Michael Stevenson

Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin & KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, 2021, 2 volumes in cloth hardcover (colour & b/w ill.), 24 × 32 cm, English

Price: €40

The exhibition Disproof Does Not Equal Disbelief by the Berlin-based artist Michael Stevenson (born in 1964, NZ) presents an unconventional invocation of his practice over the past 35 years. Since the 1980s Stevenson has developed an artistic language that operates at the juncture of economy, technology, education, and faith, exploring the infrastructural systems that condition these disciplines and their entanglement. The exhibition marks Stevenson’s first institutional solo presentation in Berlin and presents a focused revision of his work, in which early paintings are brought into dialogue with more recent expansive installation.

Designed by Will Holder.

Discipline Nº 5

Published by Discipline, Melbourne, 2019, 304 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 23 × 30 cm, English

Price: €14

Edited by Helen Hughes and David Homewood (Discipline Nº 5); Carla Macchiavello and Camila Marambio (Más allá del fin Nº 3); and designed by Robert Milne.

Discipline, Más allá del fin (translating to ‘discipline beyond the end’)—represents an effort to map a South–South relationship between Chile and Australia, and even more specifically, between its southernmost island tips: Tierra del Fuego and Tasmania. For centuries, the Northern imagination conceived of these places as the very personification of distance itself, whereas the editors of Más allá del fin refer to Tierra del Fuego as ‘the centre of the known universe’. In addition to publishing a range of essays on modern and contemporary art, this joint issue recentres and forges new connections between Southern perspectives, generating a dynamic and relational art history of the contemporary.
