Hatje Cantz

Dear Friends of Hatje Cantz,

The GANSKE VERLAGSGRUPPE is taking over Hatje Cantz. This welcome news, which became public in early May, has brought a happy ending to yet another chapter in the sixtyfive-year history of Hatje Cantz. Considering that sales of publishing companies are not­ always positive experiences, we are tremendously relieved that, like Hatje Cantz, GANSKE is committed to the same high

standards and top-quality products. We are very excited and

look forward to joining forces with our new colleagues. Hatje Cantz—including all of our employees, our offices in Stuttgart and Berlin, and our ambitious line of art books— will remain as is, fitting perfectly into GANKSE’s cultural portfolio. Publisher Thomas Ganske underscores this when

he says, “As a company, Hatje Cantz is an outstanding addition to our long-term concentration on art, design, and photography.” For Hatje Cantz, this represents an important

step toward a future full of wonderful books on art.

Early evidence of this lies right before you: our program for fall 2011. We are grateful to everyone who has loyally stood

by us during this difficult period. We hope that you enjoy our many new and diverse publica-

tions, and wish you great success with them.

Everyone’s Talking about the Weather Everyone is talking about the consequences of climate change and the capricious weather around

the world. Our books are also about the weather—

in very different and creative ways. Kevin Erskine fascinates us with his photographs of supercells, which show us the breathtaking beauty of nature,

E-Books: New to our line of Publications Time for Art Surreal Objects Once again, our Time for Art event for book dealers

(held on March 2 at the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt) attracted a great deal of attention. With a tour of the exhibition Surreal Objects, which was followed by a reception, our goals were to awaken enthusiasm, make it possible for people to cultivate and to experience art first hand our contacts with book dealers.

Hatje Cantz began offering e-books in March; the initial selection has been limited to volumes of text only. Art for Sale is our first English title available in both digital and print form. The fundamentals of the art market are informatively and entertainingly explained by Dirk Boll, managing director of Christie’s, Zurich. Notebooks for dOCUMENTA (13) will follow. Our e-books will be distributed first through Libri and Apple, but other distributors, such as Ciando, will eventually carry Hatje Cantz products.

Volume 1 of Gerhard Richter’s Catalogue Raisonné In fall 2011 the first fruits of an ambitious research project will be harvested. In September we will publish

the first of a five-volume catalogue raisonné of the paintings and sculptures of Gerhard Richter. The catalogue not only comme­morates the world-famous artist’s eightieth birthday in February 2012, but also accompanies the major retrospective opening in London in October 2011, which will move on to Berlin in February 2012, followed by Paris.

while demonstrating its fear-inducing power (pp. 28–29). Matthias Braschler and Monika Fischer cast a critical eye on the sometimes cataclysmic effects of climate change around the world (pp. 32–33), while Olaf Otto Becker shows us how the weather affects art or, more precisely, photographs of it, for “at night, when it’s raining, the landscape seems thoughtful, the visual information is minimal, the composition has more room” (pp. 26–27). So, please, let’s talk about the weather.

Wolfgang Tillmans’s Ok to Print Hatje Cantz was thrilled to have been paid a visit

by Wolfgang Tillmans, who spent two days in May

overseeing the printing of his latest book, Abstract Pictures, in Ostfildern. This is the most comprehensive publication to focus on his nonfigurative works. The delicate streaks of color in the series Blushes and Freischwimmer, and the cast shadows in his Paper Drops were a particularly enjoyable challenge for the printers at Cantz. Tillmans was obviously having a great time at the machine during the printing of our Collector’s Edition, created when he added abstract designs and shapes to the back of register sheets left over from the print run of the book.

Max Beckmann & America ❙ Beckmann’s liberating new start in the United States ­incredible energy and productivity, Beckmann produced numerous

major works in these few short years. From today’s perspective,

Beckmann’s independence is all the more impressive when seen in relation to the development of abstract art that was taking place in America at the same time. ­Beckmann retained his link to ­representationalism and its metaphorical themes, yet still managed to assert himself as a European painter of international status.

Max Beckmann (1884–1950) moved to the United States in the late summer of 1947. He would spend the last three years of his life far away from Europe, years that signified a liberating, intense new start for him. The vastness of the foreign continent, its coasts, the atmosphere of its “wild” landscapes, and its big cities all formed a palpable source of inspiration for Beckmann, who had never before had this type of physical experience of space.

Max Beckmann The Landscapes

of still lifes, making the viewer

of modern art, although he con­ sidered himself the last of the Old Masters. This publication examines the artist’s landscape paintings, which are not characterized by layers of allegorical meaning, as are his works in other genres, and their splendid painterly qualities are instantly perceptible. One of the foundations for these landscapes is the potent experience of nature. Personal objects belonging to Beckmann frequently appear in the foreground, like remnants

aware of the artist’s presence. On the other hand, the paintings are

mare: nothing is clean, orderly, idyllic, or romantic. In his perfectly staged, hyper-realistic tableaux, photographer Gregory Crewdson (* 1962) reveals the claustrophobic limbo and abyss of spiritual re­ pression that is the typical suburb. Here, hushed-up violence, alienation, isolation, and emptiness are nothing new or unfamiliar but part of the everyday experience next door. Crewdson goes to great lengths to set up his apocalyptic scenarios. The richness of detail

and mysterious atmosphere of the images from his series Beneath the Roses unfold a surreal, supernatural power of suggestion that mesmerizes the viewer. No less ­arresting are the works from ­Sanctuary, shot in the morbid ruins of Italy’s Cinecittà, and the unusual nocturne nature photos in Fireflies.

For more than thirty years now, Cindy Sherman (* 1954 in Glen Ridge, New Jersey) has been visualizing a whole gamut of role models and female identities. Even as a teenager, the artist loved to dress up. Contrary to popular belief, the famous Untitled Film Stills (1978– 80) are not her earliest works, but rather those photographs she took as a student in Buffalo between 1975 and 1977. During those years, Sherman made playing with disguises her artistic concept, producing numerous previously unknown photographs that unite a striking

number of theatrical elements. ­Using a variety of wigs, makeup, mimicry, gestures, expressions, and costumes, Sherman reveals different social identities by ­playing different roles. Gabriele Schor, director of the SAMMLUNG ­V ERBUND, has performed a ­scholarly assessment of the conceptual beginnings of her oeuvre and is now publishing a catalogue raisonné of her early work.

In this way, one can ex­ perience the role and functions of images in pop culture in relation to the (re)construction of history on both a social as well as an individual level. This publication extends to the artist’s oeuvre the ­recognition it deserves.

Nedko Solakov’s art breaks the mold in many ways. Working in very different media, using found materials, drawing, painting, scribbling on walls, or videos, Solakov counteracts the principles and rules of order, deliberately including coin­ cidences or accidents in his work. In order to present the full range of his humorous oeuvre, the catalogue All in Order, with Exceptions has taken an unusual tack: each of the four venues has selected one piece from every year included in

the body of work created between 1980 to 2010. Yet these exemplary

It examines her life, her exploration of the works of other artists, and the transformation of her emotions into works of art. Over the course of nine chapters, characteristic works are presented in the context of art history by comparing and contrasting them

with works from the Beyeler ­Collection. The book brings home the fact that Bourgeois not only offset the important antagonism between the figurative and the ­abstract in modernism, she also helped to provide a unique interpretive level to modern art beyond that of the purely visible.

Christian Ruschitzka (* 1962 in Mürzzuschlag, Austria) is one of country’s most extraordinary artists. As a sculptor, he circuits the concept of sculpture with as much wit and irony as he does with ­criticism and reflective thought. Simple objects, such as, for example, found pieces of furniture, are “skinned” as if they were part of

a hunting ritual, their individual layers of paint stripped off and nailed like trophies onto the wall between sheets of plastic wrap. The artistic (re)arrangement of the elements of these objects makes visible their form of usage and calls to mind the effort that went into their manufacture. A glove directly integrated into the sculpture of a

snowman playfully alludes to the

use and usefulness of things. In the process, the authenticity and independent existence of things are brought to light—major motifs in the humorous ­artist’s work.

His work pays homage to ancient and contemporary cultures and ­exhibits references to works by ­Joseph Beuys, Dieter Roth, or Isa Genzken. Besides his sculptures, he creates detailed charcoal drawings that are frequently an integral

part of his assemblages. Laura van Grisven notes in this respect: “Monahan searches for images, icons of hope and faith, and in equal measure of despair and pain, cutting across history, across cultures. He modernizes these images and makes them utterly his own.” For this exhibition, Matthew ­Monahan combines signature

pieces with new sculptural works embracing Zaha Hadid’s architecture and responding to the un­usual

You do not have to travel far to have the pleasure of dining beneath a Chagall: it is enough to enjoy an evening on the town in Zurich. The walls of the Kronenhalle Restaurant at Bellevue Square in Zurich display showpieces from the Hulda and Gustav Zumsteg Foundation. Gustav Zumsteg (1915–2005), son of the legendary owner of the ­Kronenhalle, Hulda Zumsteg, and a passionate art collector, concen-

trated on works by classic modern

tales to tell about their favorite

artists who, along with literary ­figures, couturiers, and actors, ­frequented the brasserie and bar. At the forefront of this publication are the works of art at the Kronenhalle. It contains an essay by the editor of this impressive compilation as well as a written portrait of the collector himself. It also ­includes contributions by guest ­authors who have very personal

­pictures at the Kronenhalle.

Friedrich Seidenstücker (1882– 1966) is noted for his atmospheric photographs of everyday life in Berlin during the Weimar Republic. Thanks to his compassionate studies of animals, he has an almost legendary reputation among animal and zoo lovers, and his haunting pictures of Berlin in ruins are a precious source of material for h ­ istorians. His images seem to be spontaneous, sympathetic examples of the kind of photography that excels at capturing the moment. They are free of any exag­

Marrigje de Maar (* 1944 in The Hague) creates photographs of the ephemeral world of the home, of being rooted. She regards the interior itself as a portrait of identity. The trained sociologist seeks out those striking and magical places where families have come together for generations—where life has “worn itself into” a house. Very important is her unusual treatment of light: her photographs are veritable masterpieces of chiaroscuro. After five trips to China, a substan-

The poetic works of Sandra ­Kantanen (* 1974 in Helsinki) are more than just landscapes. Strongly influenced by traditional Chinese landscape painting, she at first sought ideal types of motifs in the sacred mountains of China, yet rarely found what she was looking for. It was not until she combined two media and utilized painterly means that she achieved the profound expression she desired. ­Kantanen printed her early photos on hand-painted metal grounds,

Ed. Museum für Gestaltung Zürich, Andres Janser, texts by Karin Gimmi,

About half of the high-rises around the world were built in the past ten years. This construction boom has turned tall buildings into a formative element of the most important sphere of collective life today: the city. Its symbolic power, however, often seems to be larger than life, for even in the twenty-first century, the high-rise is still the embodiment of the city as such, while in the eyes of others, it is leveled against it. This publication shows contemporary buildings and projects in their cultural

and urban-planning contexts, which, depending on whether they are in Europe or Asia, for instance, can be very different. The book also inquires into the lives of individuals within the larger framework, taking a look at everyday life in the high-rise and the towering buildings as part of everyday experience. Artistic works expand the architectural horizon and question the aesthetic and ethical claims that are linked to these kinds of outstanding structures.
