LOTHAR BAUMGARTEN. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1993. 112 pp. with 58 ills. (29 col.). 35 x 27 cm. LC 94-124098 ISBN 0892071028 In English.
This large-format catalogue was designed by German artist Baumgarten (b. 1944) to complement rather than to document AMERICA Invention, a 1993 installation in which the names of Native North and South American societies were inscribed in a map-like arrangement on the walls of the Guggenheim. Accompanied by full-page reproductions of text-overlaid photographs of ethnographic displays in Oxford's Pitt Rivers Museum produced by the artist in the late 1960s, six essays (one reprinted) discuss the critiques of traditional social and museological views of indigenous cultures reflected in Baumgarten's conceptual oeuvre and examine the complex ethnological and historical significance of names.
