  • Cars - Driven By Design
    Cars - Driven By Design
    The sports cars of the 1950s to the 1970s are fast, beautiful, eccentric and innovative. In recent decades these automobiles not only became coveted collector's items; they also enjoy cult status. In an exciting journey through time the volume presents 25 outstanding sports cars as design icons and illuminates their presentation in film and photography. As a design object beyond it's practical purpose, the automobile has left an indelible mark on the world we live in. There is scarcely another everyday item which has been designed in a more sophisticated and inventive manner and which offers a larger projection area. This can be seen with particular clarity in the sports car. The volume pays homage to a selection of exclusive sports cars by legendary manufacturers, from Porsche to Ferrari to Jaguar, as artworks in their own right and as a unity of form, technology, design and emotions. Essays, selected texts and biographies shed light on the multi-layered development of automobile design and introduce the vehicles and their designers.

  • Picasso.Mania
    Picasso.Mania
    As the co-founder of cubism and a prolific painter, sculptor, printmaker, and more, Pablo Picasso was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. He was also one of the most influential—his work haunted the imagination of his peers and has frequently been echoed in contemporary art. In Picasso.Mania, Didier Ottinger, Diana Widmaier-Picasso, and Emilie Bouvard bring together a distinguished group of contributors to showcase the rich engagement with Picasso’s work that has inspired artists for decades. To trace Picasso’s influence, the essays return to the 1960s, when Picasso’s vibrant presence struck a chord in pop art and narrative figuration, and artists like Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein returned to Picassien archetypal figures. Not long after, Martin Kippenberger’s self-portraits revealed the impact of Picasso’s public image on the imagination of twentieth-century artists, while David Hockney’s Polaroid composites and multiscreen videos echoed Picasso’s exploration of a polyfocal space. These essays also explore the ways Picasso’s stylistic eclecticism and the free craftsmanship of his later paintings inspired artists like Georg Baselitz, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Julian Schnabel, while more recently, Rineke Dijkstra’s video installation I See a Woman Crying (Weeping Woman) illustrated Picasso’s presence in contemporary art’s most diverse means of expression—cinema, digital images, and even comic strips. With three hundred illustrations of works by Picasso and contemporary artists and an interview with Phillipe Sollers by Stéphane Guégan, Picasso Mania is sure to become an authoritative work on the Spanish master’s connection to contemporary art.
