MATTHIAS BITZER. Distanz Verlag, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Die Gestalten Verlag, Berlin, through Prestel Publishing, New York. Four volumes. ISBN 9783954761593 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: August 2016. Publisher's description: In a revisionist reassessment of classic modernism, Matthias Bitzer (b. Stuttgart, 1975; lives and works in Berlin) combines portraiture with geometric construction, often drawing on the formal vocabulary, plots, and intellectual history of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His work in media such as painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, and site-specific installation art speaks a characteristic symbolic language. Interweaving the lives of prominent figures like Anita Berber, Jorge Luis Borges, Emily Dickinson, Leopoldo Fregoli, Fernando Pessoa, and Arthur Schnitzler with his own biographical experience and contemporary life, Bitzer creates dense narrative fabrics that accommodate the viewer's abstract-figurative associations. The book documents the evolution of Bitzer's conceptions of time-space through four of his most representative solo exhibitions.
