Ensembles Anna Oppermann

Published by Neue Galerie-Sammlung Ludwig, Aachen, 1976, 9 sets of cards enclosed in cardboard folder, (b/w ill.), 21.4 × 30.4 cm, German

Price: €38

Anna Oppermann (1940–1993) is best known for her “ensembles”—expansive and complex assemblages of drawings, photographs, notes, and found objects that she developed, often over the course of years, in idiosyncratic creative processes. The fruits of an approach that was both intensely visual and tenaciously reflective, her ensembles are explicitly open works.

Produced as part of the three part exhibition Hier-vanaf-elders (Here-from-elsewhere) by Daniel Buren held concurrently over three different museums. Each museum was assigned a part of the overall title: hier in the Stedelijk Amsterdam, vanaf in the Rijksmuseum Kröller-Müller and elders in the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven. Buren created a geographical triangle that connected the museums. In each museum, he marked a point of the triangle in the exhibition space using the striped awning canvas that is so characteristic for him. and each museum was given its own colour.

Diagramme zum 1. Werksatz Franz Erhard Walther

Published by Kunstraum München, München, 1976, 102 pages (b/w ill.), 21 × 29.5 cm, English

Price: €34

Produced on the occasion of Franz Erhard Walther’s exhibitions at Kunstraum München, 29 January – 20 March, 1976 and Städtisches Kunstmuseum Bonn, 8 June – 18 July, 1976.

Franz Erhard Walther is a key figure in the departure from the image since the European postwar period. Beyond the classical understanding of sculpture and painting, Walther formulated a completely new concept of work that included the viewer as an actor. Early in his work, fabric – until then an unusual artistic material – became a source of innovation for Walther, from which the “activation objects” emerged. In the wall formations of the 1980s, he achieved an incomparable interweaving of painting, sculpture, and architecture that continues to this day.
