JR: Inside Out

JR: Inside

This book showcases the most important work by celebrated street artist and activist JR—the award-winning global street-art project he has been working on for the last six years, involving a quarter of a million people. Artist and activist JR exhibits freely in the streets of the world, catching the attention of people who are not typical museum visitors. Known for plastering cities with huge black-and-white wheatpaste photographic portraits of the people who live there, JR won a $1 millian TED Prize in 2011 with his “TED Wish”: to create a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work by making digitally uploaded images into posters to display in diverse communities. To accomplish this, JR has visited cities on nearly every continent. Since the project’s inception, approximately 200,000 people have contributed their portraits. From the suburbs of Paris to Israel and Palestine, and from the villages of Kenya to the favelas of Brazil, his art is inextricably linked with activism: his art advocates for universal women’s rights, peace and equality, and maintaining an idealism about humanity. Inside Out captures the scope of his vision and his innovative model for creating a global art. Packed with hundreds ...

Bauhaus Women: Art, Handicraft, Design

Bauhaus Women: Art, Handicraft,

This monograph—published to coincide with the Bauhaus exhibition at the MoMA (November 8, 2009-January 25, 2010)—celebrates the work of twenty women artists who created feverishly in all the teaching, workshop, and production branches of the Bauhaus—women who should have been included in the major art histories of the twentieth century long ago, but whose names, masterpieces, and extraordinary lives have only gradually become known to us. Recognized figures such as Anni Albers—the first textile artist to be exhibited at the MoMA—and Marianne Brandt—whose elegant geometric tableware have become classic Alessi designs—are showcased alongside previously unknown artists such as Gertrud Grunow, who taught "Harmonizing Science"; Helene Börner, who led the textile workshop; and Ilse Fehling, a sculptor and the most sought-after set and costume designer of her generation. Founded in 1919, the Bauhaus and most of its students were poor and lacking in just about everything. What it did have, however, was an abundance of enthusiasm, talent, and innovative creativity. Furthermore, over half of those seeking to enroll at the school were women. This tornado of the "fairer sex" was initially seen as a threat, and the weaving mill was quickly turned into a separate "women’s faci...

Viviane Sassen: Pikin Slee

Viviane Sassen: Pikin

Renowned photographic artist Viviane Sassen's latest body of work was realized in a remote village on the Upper Suriname River. Known for her imaginative approach to fashion photography, Sassen's lens here captures mundane objects, making them appear extraordinary against the background of nature's overwhelming presence. Largely shot in black and white, the informal photos also capture a sense of Sassen's personal connection to the village, which is inhabited by the ancestors of former slaves who escaped Dutch rule. "This project is an exploration of the beauty of the everyday," writes Sassen in her introduction, "an investigation of the sculptural qualities of the ordinary." Her many followers will find much to contemplate and savour in this new book by an artist who constantly challenges herself and her audience.

North Korea: State of Paranoia: A Modern

North Korea  is a country  that continues  to make headlines—arousing curiosity and fear in equal measure.  The world’s most secretive nuclear power, it is a nation that still has Gulag-style prison camps, no internet, and bans its people from talking to foreigners without official approval.

Unexpected Paris: A Contemporary Portrait

Unexpected Paris: A Contemporary

This book captures every aspect of Paris and its inhabitants: urban acrobats take to the streets, a sandaled nun crosses the capital on a city bike, extravagant partygoers strike memorable silhouettes during gay pride, children frolic in city fountains on a steamy summer day, and aging friends enjoy an aperitif at Les Deux Magots. The Parisian landscape is illuminated through photographs of the snow-covered Canal Saint-Martin at night, the Ferris wheel at the Place de la Concorde, a balloon launch at the July Column, and a Bastille Day aerial parade of military planes leaving ribbons of blue, white, and red smoke in their wake. Rare glimpses behind the scenes include a table set for intimate dining in the Salon des Ambassadeurs at the presidential Élysée Palace, the empty stage at the Opéra Comique, and a taxidermist at work at the natural history museum. From amateur fashionistas strutting their stuff to tourists posing with masterpieces in the Louvre to miniature dogs in miniature coats, this is an authentic portrait of Paris today.
