Die Rätsel des Künslters Marcel Duchamp

by Ulrike Hug-Stüwe | 26 November 2021

‘Die Publikation, die auch Duchamps erste Monografie war, ist in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Investition, die sich lohnt. Einerseits gibt sie einen sehr umfassenden und auch persönlich anmutenden Einblick in die Entwicklung und Arbeitsweise des Künstlers, der beileibe nicht nur ein Künstler des Readymade's war, wie seine Arbeiten vor 1913 und später zeigen. Andererseits wird man mit der Publikation in eine Zeit reisen, deren Dynamik im Hinblick auf die Weitung des Kunstbegriffes auch heute noch einmalig ist.’

Erna Rosenstein’s Dreamlike Forms Resist Interpretation

by Peter Brock | 9 November 2021

‘Rosenstein’s work feels nourishing precisely because it is difficult to summarize. Engaging with these paintings takes time because she never settles into a uniform graphic strategy, and the shifting beauty of her restless imagination pushes against the reductive tendency and impatience that characterizes the attention economy.’

Glenn Ligon

by Megan O'Grady | 16 October 2021

‘For over 30 years, the artist has been making work that speaks to American history — ambiguous, open-ended, existentially observant. At a time in which the fundamentals of fact and fiction are being questioned, his art captures the truth of a culture in decline.’
