Présentation de l'éditeur :

Isa Genzken's sculpture is concerned with what surrounds us and shapes our everyday existence, from design, advertising, and the media to her most enduring subject, architecture and the urban environment. The artist is interested in the ways in which aesthetic styles--the unadorned angularity of modernist architecture for example--embody and enforce political and social ideologies. ---------- »Urlaub« constitutes Genzken's multilayered inquiry into the meaning of work and leisure. 'Artists never take vacations,' Genzken says, 'but the entire art system urgently needs a vacation.' ---------- Vanessa Joan Müller examines how Genzken's recent work establishes a critical discourse about architecture and design as exposed sites of aesthetic and cultural formation. Discussing the artist's 'beach house' series, small architectural models with playfully defined interiors/exteriors, the author writes that one can read them 'as a pointed commentary on postmodern architecture, as a subtle attack on the predominant taste of the times. When Genzken gets involved with the miniaturization of this kind of architecture-- which could be realized in principle--turning it into small-format sculpture, the procedure emphasizes the ambiguity of the subject toward a particular 'resort-style beach life.' The aspect of playing with form and material should therefore not deceive: the beach house is a status symbol that can only be found on the exclusive beaches of this world, and hence it is simultaneously the object of envy and a hallmark of distinction.'

Description du livre Sternberg Press, United States, 2000. Hardback. Etat : New. Bilingual. Language: English. Brand new Book. Isa Genzken's sculpture is concerned with what surrounds us and shapes our everyday existence, from design, advertising, and the media to her most enduring subject, architecture and the urban environment. The artist is interested in the ways in which aesthetic styles - the unadorned angularity of modernist architecture for example -embody and enforce political and social ideologies. Urlaub constitutes Genzken's multilayered inquiry into the meaning of work and leisure. "Artists never take vacations," Genzken says, "but the entire art system urgently needs a vacation."Vanessa Joan Müller examines how Genzken's recent work establishes a critical discourse about architecture and design as exposed sites of aesthetic and cultural formation. Discussing the artist's "beach house" series, small architectural models with playfully defined interiors/exteriors, the author writes that one can read them "as a pointed commentary on postmodern architecture, as a subtle attack on the predominant taste of the times. When Genzken gets involved with the miniaturization of this kind of architecture - which could be realized in principle - turning it into small-format sculpture, the procedure emphasizes the ambiguity of the subject toward a particular 'resort-style beach life'. The aspect of playing with form and material should therefore not deceive: the beach house is a status symbol that can only be found on the exclusive beaches of this world, and hence it is simultaneously the object of envy and a hallmark of distinction."This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Urlaub at Frankfurter Kunstverein, May 27 - August 6, 2000.
