JUTTA KOETHER: F. Ed. by Isabelle Graw and Daniel Birnbaum. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 130 pp. 17 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956790058 In English.
Publisher's description: First published in German in 1987, f. is a fascinating, thoughtful and detailed meditation on women and painting by German painter, writer, critic, musician and performer Jutta Koether. Written in novella form, Koether's narrative revolves around the "things that make art and the things that art makes" -- velvet, flowers, light, for example, and social connections, visual and emotional experiences. In f. (for female), several disembodied characters consider a necklace, an orange, lipstick, money, a fountain pen -- objects that help the characters and narrator come into being -- but it is paintings that truly embody and extend the life of the narrator. Throughout, Koether reminds us of the importance of the person (the artist) behind her product (the art), and suggests that the way an artist stages herself is an integral part of her practice. Included in this new volume, from the Institut fur Kunstkritik, is a facsimile of the original German publication.
