JAHRESRING 62: TOWARD AN AESTHETICS OF LIVING BEINGS. Ed. by Cord Riechelemann and Brigitte Oetker. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 288 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791802 In English.
Publisher's description: Animals in the world of contemporary art are the theme of the latest publication from the ongoing Jahresring series of interdisciplinary, discursive readers. The advent of the camera -- with its ability to record moving creatures -- initiated a new phase in the human investigation of animal behavior in art. To demonstrate the idea that culture, self-consciousness and language do not belong exclusively to man, editor Cord Riechelmann -- a sociologist, writer and animal behavioralist -- selects artworks by Joseph Beuys, Rosemarie Trockel and Carsten Holler, and others; key texts by Sergei Eisenstein, Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari and Donna Haraway; and works by Pierre Huyghe, Christoph Keller and Helen Marten. The Jahrespring series, the longest continually published annual journal for contemporary art in Germany, embraces diverse voices and forms of writing and thinking about contemporary art and culture.
