Artists' Books for Everything

Artists' Books for Everything
Artists’ books represent a particular phenomenon within contemporary art. Since their emergence in the 1950s they have become established worldwide as a new type of art. Artists’ books are autonomous works of art in the form of books. Works of art in large editions, they exemplify the democratisation of art as well as the mobility and interconnectedness of artists. Artists’ books are independent works of art - published, printed and copied - that are born of an artistic conception, in the tradition of Dieter Roth, Ilya Kabakov and Marcel Broodthaers in Europe, Ed Ruscha and Michael Snow in North America, Ulises Carríon, Clemente Padin and Edgardo Antonio Vigo in Latin America, William Kentridge in Africa, Yoko Ono in Asia and Robert Jacks in Australia.

Marikke Heinz-Hoek

Linkepoot - Books and Editions
The video- and installation artist Marikke Heinz-Hoek developed her first editions in the early 1990s using a computer. Over the following years she produced numerous other works in the same manner, in small to unlimited print runs. Her preoccupation with the northern German landscape and the confrontation with various biographies are recurring themes in her editions. The photo-edition “Stardust 6” from 2015, for instance, juxtaposes landscape drawings by the artist and original photographs of outer space, while a computer-disk-object from the 1990s deals with the life of Marilyn Monroe.[more...]
