Born in Frankfurt am Main in 1934, Mary Bauermeister is widely regarded as the "mother" of the Fluxus movement, which had been developing since the 1950s but was galvanized by a series of gatherings Bauermeister held at her studio near Cologne starting in 1960. In the years that followed, she became world-renowned for her lens boxes and stone spirals, while remaining closely associated with Fluxus. Today Bauermeister's works are represented in major museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. ​This magnificent volume offers a beautiful, illustrated guided tour of Bauermeister's enchanting studio and garden, where she created the works that made her name. The artist meticulously designed the house and garden over a period of almost 50 years, employing fantastic elements such as cottages, towers, circus wagons, her own art works, and the works of many other artists. The photographer Thomas Köster documented Bauermeister's fairy-tale property over the course of many years, resulting in a unique and fascinating publication.

The catalogue shows select works by Mary Bauermeister (*1934) from 1958 to the present. In the interim, she has come to be regarded as one of the central German postwar artists. By the beginning of the 1960s at the latest, the co-founder of the FLUXUS movement established herself as an international artist with her move to New York and through purchases of her works by renowned museums. Among her works are large-scale installations, such as Howevercall (1964), her signature stone swirls as well as backlit cloths and patchwork tableaux in the tradition of the Arte Povera movement. Concerts with experimental music, exhibitions and performances were organized in her Cologne studio, which soon became a meeting place for artists, such as Nam June Paik, John Cage and Günther Uecker.

The Cologne artist Mary Bauermeister made her mark on the New York art market in the middle of the 1960s. Her 'lens boxes' – wooden boxes, open at the front, containing several visual layers made of glass, with lenses and prisms arranged on top – fascinated curators and collectors. Every major New York museum purchased her work. For the first time, in this catalogue, Bauermeister's poetic, enigmatic and intriguing works are presented against the background of the experimental art of the 1960s, illustrating formal and content-related connections to contemporary groups like ZERO, Fluxus and Nouveau Réalisme. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Mary Bauermeister: Worlds in the Box, October 2010 - January 2011, at Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany. English and German text.

* This book is the first to take a close look at those works in which Bauermeister privileges language as a means of artistic expression * She uses cyphers, symbols and textual fragments from nature, science, academia, philosophy, mathematics, music and art to create sensual, poetic drawings, collages and objects * Bauermeister first won fame with her celebrated 'lens boxes' in which convex glass, magnifiers and prisms merge with optically distorted images and words, forming magical cabinets of wonder Over the last few years, the oeuvre of Mary Bauermeister (*1934) has been extensively rediscovered and celebrated. Today, she is considered to be one of Germany's leading female post-war artists. In the early 1960s, her studio in Cologne, located at Lintgasse 28, was the meeting place for artists, poets and composers such as Nam June Paik, Christo, Joseph Beuys, John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen, her future husband. They all used experimental music, readings, exhibitions, performances and happenings to explore the limits of social norms. Soon afterwards, Bauermeister moved to New York for a time, where she gained international acclaim. This book is the first to take a close look at those works in which Bauermeister privileges language as a means of artistic expression. She uses cyphers, symbols and textual fragments from nature, science, academia, philosophy, mathematics, music and art to create sensual, poetic drawings, collages and objects. Bauermeister first won fame with her celebrated 'lens boxes' in which convex glass, magnifiers and prisms merge with optically distorted images and words, forming magical cabinets of wonder.

How technologies, from the mechanical to the computational, have transformed artistic performance practices. This ambitious and comprehensive book explores technology's influence on artistic performance practices in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In Entangled, Chris Salter shows that technologies, from the mechanical to the computational--from a "ballet of objects and lights" staged by Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in 1917 to contemporary technologically-enabled "responsive environments"--have been entangled with performance across a wide range of disciplines. Salter examines the rich and extensive history of performance experimentation in theater, music, dance, the visual and media arts, architecture, and other fields; explores the political, social, and economic context for the adoption of technological practices in art; and shows that these practices have a set of common histories despite their disciplinary borders. Each chapter in Entangled focuses on a different form: theater scenography, architecture, video and image making, music and sound composition, body-based arts, mechanical and robotic art, and interactive environments constructed for research, festivals, and participatory urban spaces. Salter's exhaustive survey and analysis shows that performance traditions have much to teach other emerging practices--in particular in the burgeoning fields of new media. Students of digital art need to master not only electronics and code but also dramaturgy, lighting, sound, and scenography. Entangled will serve as an invaluable reference for students, researchers, and artists as well as a handbook for future praxis.

Basing his work on conversations with the composer, Karl Wörner puts into plain language the ideas behind Stockhausen's new musical forms, examines the development of electronic music and explains the spatial location in new music; the broader aspects of the composer's place in musical history and in the society in which he works are also considered. Particularly valuable is the section on Stockhausen's life, his friends and pupils; and the book includes the composer's own notes on his works. -- from back cover.

New Music, New Allies documents how American experimental music and its practitioners came to prominence in the West German cultural landscape between the end of the Second World War in 1945 and the reunification of East and West Germany in 1990. Beginning with the reeducation programs implemented by American military officers during the postwar occupation of West Germany and continuing through the cultural policies of the Cold War era, this broad history chronicles German views on American music, American composers’ pursuit of professional opportunities abroad, and the unprecedented dissemination and support their music enjoyed through West German state-subsidized radio stations, new music festivals, and international exchange programs. Framing the biographies of prominent American composer-performers within the aesthetic and ideological contexts of the second half of the twentieth century, Amy C. Beal follows the international careers of John Cage, Henry Cowell, Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, David Tudor, Frederic Rzewski, Christian Wolff, Steve Reich, Pauline Oliveros, Conlon Nancarrow, and many others to Donaueschingen, Darmstadt, Cologne, Bremen, Berlin, and Munich.

How did the concept of the avant-garde come into existence? How did it impact on the performing arts? How did the avant-garde challenge the artistic establishment and avoid the pull of commercial theatre, gallery and concert-hall circuits? How did performance artists respond to new technological developments? Placing key figures and performances in their historical, social and aesthetic context, Günter Berghaus offers an accessible introduction to post-war avant-garde performance. Written in a clear, engaging style, and supported by text boxes and illustrations throughout, this volume explains the complex ideas behind avant-garde art and evocatively brings to life the work of some of its most influential performance artists. Covering hot topics such as multi-media and body art performances, this text is essential reading for students of theatre studies and performance.

John Cage (1912-92) defined such a radical practice of musical composition that he changed the course of modern music in the last century and shaped a new conceptual horizon for post-war art. This book traces a path through the artist's career, from his initial works in the 1930s, pieces that broadened the parameters of percussion music by incorporating the most unconventional of instruments, leading to his 'prepared piano', moving to his famous theory on 'silence' (and the score 4'33"), his pathbreaking deployment of chance and then indeterminacy, and culminating his innovative multimedia work, which began in the 1960s and continued through the 1980s. With this book, the MACBA aims to capture the relevance of Cage's contribution to present day contemporary art. One of the sections will chart the network of repercussions as Cage's radical conceptual transformation of 'composition' entered the strategies of advanced art.

Christian Wolff is a composer who has followed a distinctive path often at the centre of avant-garde activity working alongside figures such as John Cage, Merce Cunningham, and Cornelius Cardew. In a career spanning sixty years, he has produced a significant and influential body of work that has aimed to address, in a searching and provocative manner, what it means to be an experimental and socially aware artist. This book provides a wide-ranging introduction to a composer often overlooked despite his influence upon many of the major figures in new music since the 1950s from Cage to John Zorn to the new wave of experimentalists across the globe. As the first detailed analysis of the music of this prolific and highly individual composer, Changing the System: The Music of Christian Wolff contains contributions from leading experts in the field of new and experimental music, as well as from performers and composers who have worked with Wolff. The reception of Wolff's music is discussed in relation to the European avant-garde and also within the context of Wolff's association with Cage and Feldman. Music from his earliest compositions of the 1950s, the highly indeterminate scores, the politically-inspired pieces up to the most recent works are discussed in detail, both in relation to their compositional techniques, general aesthetic development, and matters of performance. The particular challenges and aesthetic issues arising from Wolff's idiosyncratic notations and the implications for performers are a central theme. Likewise, the ways in which Wolff's political persuasions - which arguably account for some of the notational methods he chooses - have been worked out through his music, are examined. With a foreword by his close associate Michael Parsons, this is a valuable addition to experimental music literature.
