JOSEF BAUER: WORKS 1965-TODAY. Ed. by Krist Gruijthuijsen. Grazer Kunstverein, Graz, 2015. Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 208 pp. 27 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783956790966 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: One of Austria's noted conceptual artist from the 1960s, Josef Bauer combines sculpture, installation, painting, and performance to disturb our perception of words and colors as mere "carriers" of meaning. Detached from the flat surfaces they normally adorn, letters and colors become the sculptural objects that collapse the divide between language and bodies in the over 100 career-spanning works showcased in this extensive survey catalog. Works 1965-Today is a vital global introduction to this underrepresented master of letters and their contours. The introductory essay by Krist Gruijthuijsen illuminates Bauer's "tactile poetry" as a radical embodiment of '60s Concrete poetry; Austrian philosopher Thomas Zaunschirm explores Bauer's formal bid to transcend the representational relation of language to images in an essay from 1974; Bettina Steinbrugge throws light on the reception and development of his works. Also included is a unique visual rejoinder by artist Hans-Peter Feldmann.
