THE BOOK LOVER'S PUBLICATION: ARTIST NOVELS. David Maroto and Joanna Zielinska. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 200 pp. 20 x 16 cm. ISBN 9783956790768 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Devoted to the phenomenon of the artist novel, Book Lovers asks the question whether the artist novel can or should be considered a medium in its own right within the visual arts, like video or installation. By introducing traits from narrative literature such as narration, fiction, identification and the act of reading, visual artists incorporate different strategies to integrate their novels into their practice. In this publication, curators David Maroto and Joanna Zieli'nska engage a discussion on artist novels in the 20th century. Works by Guy de Cointet, Henry Joseph Darger, Yayoi Kusama, Jill Magid, Richard Prince and others are illustrated and examined. Contributions by a selected group of artists, writers, curators and scholars including Roland Barthes, Liam Gillick, Kenneth Goldsmith, Tom McCarthy, Ingo Niermann, Seth Price, Seth Siegelaub among others demonstrate that literature, when treated by visual artists, can take its place well beyond the space of the book.
