"This is an anthology of essays that first appeared in The Artist as Curator, a series that occupied eleven issues of Mousse from no. 41 (December 2013/January 2014) to no. 51 (December 2015/January 2016). It set out to examine what was then a profoundly influential but still under-studied phenomenon, a history that had yet to be written: the fundamental role artists have played as curators.Taking that ontologically ambiguous thing we call "the exhibition" as a critical medium, artists have often radically rethought conventional forms of exhibition making. This anthology surveys seminal examples of such exhibitions from the postwar to the present, including rare documents and illustrations. It includes an introduction and the twenty essays that first appeared in Mousse, a newly commissioned afterword by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and two additional essays that appear here for the first time."

Kenyan sculptor and anthropologist Wangechi Mutu (born 1972) mines ethnographic photography, fashion, sport, porn and popular-science publications such as "National Geographic" to develop her fierce critique of the deformation of the female body by consumerism in elegant, tapering spirals of collage and drawing. Mutu refers to her hybrid women as "warrior women" whom she augments and contorts in prosthetic treatments. Often indefinably horrific, Mutu's complexly patterned works are often pitched between decorative abstraction and mutant figuration, and as Klaus Ottman points out in an essay included here, her hybrid creatures evoke "the genocidal horrors inflicted by African rebels in Sierra Leone and Sudanese soldiers in Darfur while also recalling the imaginative heads of Archimboldo; the erotic contortions of Egon Schiele; and the photomontages of Hannah Hoch." Mutu's work, presented here in over 130 color images, has advanced a fresh treatment of black female identity, consumer culture and postcolonialism.

These days people love art especially contemporary art, which has become a constantly growing cultural factor. Fascinated by the artists' creative milieu, the public strives to share in its atmosphere of being something special. In a time of upheaval, this publication offers a look behind the scenes of the contemporary art world in which the triangle of artist, artwork, and viewer has long since been expanded many times over. The relationships between artist, collector, gallerist, curator, and critic frequently inform the works' very contents, and these aspects are increasingly represented in the works themselves. Many artists keep an eye on what happens in the art world and reflect the more and more lavish trade: from the creative process and the mounting of an exhibition to the rituals of the scene. English and German text.

Wie eine junge Frau aus Kiew loszog, in Moskau ihr Glück zu suchen Von Sehnsucht nach dem freien Künstlerdasein gepackt, folgt die junge Elephantina ihrem Idol in die Katakomben Moskaus. Der rotgesichtige Dichterguru Pomidor, ein Mann in den besten Jahren, prominenter Kopf der Avantgarde, hat sie die »neue Achmatowa« genannt. Vergessen das provinzielle Kiew, die öde Kunstschule. Durch Bahnhöfe, Theatergarderoben und Museen von einer Schlafstatt zur nächsten irrend, findet die nonnenhaft gekleidete Nomadin eine Wohnung, die sie schon bald in eine Künstlerkolonie verwandelt. Dichterabende in überfüllten Studentenklubs mit Spitzeln in den hinteren Reihen, verbotene Kunstaktionen in Moskau und Umgebung, die Begegnung mit Allen Ginsberg, eine Vorladung beim KGB – doch all das ist nur die Kulisse, vor der Elephantina sich nach Pomidor verzehrt. Eine éducation sentimentale in kräftigen Farben, episodenreich und voller Temperament und Gelächter.

In the last two years the German art scene has experienced a tremendous growth unlike anything since the early 1980s -- owing to a revitalized Berlin and an ever-expanding cultural diversity. German Open captures this energy by giving an overview of more than 30 of the best young artists working in Germany today. The artists documented represent the entire spectrum of visual art, from installation to painting to video, and their work can no longer be viewed as a matter of scattered individual gestures, but must be examined in a group context. Among the artists included here are Franz Ackerman, Kai Althoff, Simone Bohm, Coisma von Bonin, Matti Braun, Olafur Eliasson, Stefan Hoderlein, Stefan Kern, Michel Majerus, Tobias Rehberger, Daniel Richter, Heidi Specker, Johannes Wohnseifer, and Joseph Zehrer.

Eine anarchische Hymne auf das Schreiben, das Leben und die Liebe Eine Familie in einem alten Gutshaus: Da ist der Vater, der gar nicht der Vater ist. Da ist die bizarr schöne Mutter. Der Onkel, der ununterbrochen schläft. Die hinkende Tochter. Und eines Tages steht die junge Braut in der Tür, die sich dem Sohn versprochen hat – der unauffindbar ist. Sie bleibt bei der Familie und lernt, was es heißt, das eigene Schicksal zu bestimmen. Als sie genau darin die Katastrophe erkennt, rettet sie sich in die Liebe zu dem abwesenden Sohn und in das stoische Warten auf ihn. Doch eines Tages muss sie einsehen, dass sie nicht mehr warten kann. Alessandro Baricco führt uns in eine Welt, die zusammengesetzt ist aus Schicksalen, Geheimnissen, Erwartungen. Es ist ein Experiment: Was, wenn alles immer nur ein und dieselbe Geschichte ist, aus wechselnden Perspektiven erzählt, von verschiedenen Sehnsüchten geprägt, von unterschiedlichen Menschen gelebt?
