TONY CONRAD: TWO DEGREES OF SEPARATION -- UBER ZWEL ECKEN. Ed. by Gareth Long and Nicolaus Schafhausen. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. 17 x 12 cm. ISBN 9783956791697 In English.
Publisher's description: Tony Conrad (b. 1940) is considered the first true crossover artist. Composer, experimental filmmaker, sound artist, teacher and writer and video artist, Conrad was an early member of Theatre of Eternal Music, aka The Dream Syndicate, which included John Cale and LaMonte Young among others, and utilized intonation and sustained sound to produce "dream music." He migrated from music to film in 1960s New York, producing the iconic structuralist film The Flicker (1965). This slim monograph accompanying Conrad's eponymous exhibition (Kunsthalle Wien) includes critic Jonathan Walley's essay "A Show That's Almost Invisible," on the installation's relationship to "the woman-in-prison" film subgenre, silent music and Italian Renaissance perspective. In conversation with the artist, German cultural critic Diedrich Diederichsen elicits important insights on Conrad's unique position in contemporary art. Color photographs of the installation depict Conrad's ongoing teasing out of the power structures that determine our gazes.
