CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE: GESAMMTTKKUNNSTTMESHUGGAHHLAANDTTTTT. Ed. by Luca Lo Pinto and Samuel Saelemakers. Kunsthalle Wien, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 80 pp. 33 x 25 cm. ISBN 9783956792328 In English.
Publisher's description: A major influence on 20th-century contemporary art, the sound and performance artist Charlemagne Palestine (b. 1947) works from a highly personal universe of ritual, intoxication and shamanism. Part exhibition document and artist book, this oversized publication is both electrifying and an assault to the senses exploding with images of rooms overflowing with the stuffed animals the artist calls "divinities." A sampling from 40 years of Charlemagne's extensive experimental musical compositions, performances and installations is complemented by Kunstalle Wein curator Luca Lo Pinto's interview with the artist and an essay by Whitney performance curator Jay Sanders. Also included are Palestine's extraordinary music and sound annotations and a large collection of works on paper translating sound into image. Besides Palestine being a force of his own, few recognize the powerful influence Charlemagne had on young artists such as Mike Kelly while he was teaching at Cal Arts in the 1970s. Exhibited and collected by major institutions throughout Europe and the US.
