JULIUS KOLLER: GALERIA GANKU. Daniel Grun. Schlebrugge.editor, Vienna, 2015. 424 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9783902833556 In English.
Publisher's description: Considered a key figure in 20th-century Slovak art, Július Koller also created the famed Ganek Gallery, a retreat found situated on a mountain peak meant to symbolized the interaction between the earthly and the cosmos. Although no works were ever actually displayed there, its aim was to communicate thoughts and ideas that would not have found their place in art otherwise. The project evolved through many years of persevering work, with the community of its adherents meeting in private apartments in Bratislava. This book about the Ganek Gallery emerged from the dialogue with participants, as a supplementary catalogue of Koller's fictive institution. It brings together photographs, magazine cut-outs, collages, drawings, and text records from many private and public sources. The print media and the culture of high mountain tourism in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s and 1980s are explored in all their complexity and light is thrown upon an artist whose working methods remain inspirational right to the present day.
