TELL THEM I SAID NO. Herbert Martin. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 128 pp. with 26 ills. 20 x 13 cm. ISBN 9783956792007 In English.
Publisher's description: Martin Herbert's timely new collection of essays considers various artists who have withdrawn from the art world or adopted an antagonistic position toward its mechanisms. Today, a large part of the artist's role in our massively professionalized art world is being present. Herbert provides a counterargument for this proactive concept of self-marketing, examining the consequential nature of retreat, whether in protest, as a deliberate conceptual act or out of necessity. By illuminating the motives of artists including Stanley Brouwn, Charlotte Posenenske, David Hammons, Lutz Bacher and Agnes Martin among others, this book offers a unique perspective on where and how the needs of the artist and the needs of the art world diverge. Martin Herbert is a writer and critic living in Berlin. He is associate editor of ArtReview and writes for international art journals. Previous books include The Uncertainty Principle (2014) by Sternberg Press and Mark Wallinger (2011). Mark Wallinger (2011).
