ULL HOHN: FOREGROUNDS, DISTANCES. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 332 pp. 25 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783956791567 In English.
Publisher's description: After his studies at the arts academies in Berlin and Dusseldorf, German artist Ull Hohn (1960-1995) moved to New York to attend the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1987. While at the Whitney, Hohn met his future partner, the artist Tom Burr. Engaging with the current theoretical debates and cultural issues, his work from the late 1980s and early 1990s began to invoke questions of gender and homosexuality and their representation. Foregrounds, Distances offers the first comprehensive overview of Hohn's work, which contributed to the history of painting-based practices that were marginalized in established narratives of 1980s and '90s art. In his work, Hull consistently interrogated the history of painting, traditional notions of virtuosity, the conventions of value and taste inherent to education, and the distinction between high and popular culture. Texts by Tom Burr, Thomas Eggerer, Manfred Hermes, Hannes Loichinger, Fionn Meade, Magnus Schaefer, Megan Francis Sullivan, Lanka Tattersall and Alexis Vaillant.
