In FORMAT, Sarah Crowner’s first widely distributed artist book, the artist creates a roving collage of source material culled from a diverse range of previously distributed print material: magazines, books, posters, newspapers, postcards, etc. This publication provides a rare insight into the artist’s working practice, demonstrating Crowner’s concerns with visual formulations hinged on historical investigations, particularly in the overlap of art, writing, fashion, and design. Crowner’s graceful positioning of this material gives the reader a spirited visual narrative that unfolds many of our inherited formal mantras of the 20th Century. - primary information website

Facsimile of an artist book that Genzken created about 15 years ago in Berlin and published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Stedelijk, Amsterdam (29.11.2015-11.03.2016). The book, a scrapbook in the style of Genzken's well-known publication 'I Love New York, Crazy City', is full of playful collages in which she reflects on big-city life, media culture, sexual identity, and her own biography.
"1968 the newest project by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari's Toiletpaper in collaboration with the Deste Foundation in Athens, is an unorthodox and kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou collection of radical design. A pivotal year for architecture, design and society, 1968 is a collection of dreams and nightmares, an inspiring compendium of colorful, ironic materials, objects, and bodies. Toiletpaper's interpretation of the collection results in mind blowing photographs that trap us in a complex system of references, crossing layers, three dimensional and real time collages."--P.  of cover.
Believe You Me is an artists' book that corresponds with Rocklen's 2011 exhibition of the same name. For the "book version of the exhibition," Rocklen had photographer Lee Thompson photograph the raw materials he would then use to construct his sculptures (thrift store acquired trophies, posters, t-shirts, paintings and a found telephone book). Rocklen then used those photographs as the source material for the book. Essentially a series of hyper-detail images of the works in the exhibition, Believe You Me collages the photographs into full-bleed spreads that have been loosely organized around a set of scanned telephone book pages and which function as the book's chapters (Hair-Handwriting, Ice-Immigration, Religious-Remodeling, etc). -- 2nd Cannons website, accessed 10/05/2012.
Focusing on found objects such as stickers, greeting cards, and magazine photos collected in collage framework, complete with song lyrics hand-lettered in cursive script and heartbreaking, melancholic watercolors, Ahlers explores and exposes the social construction of roles, feminine and otherwise. Beginning with incipient childhood self-awareness and traversing high school status jockeying to adult social climbing, the cultural imagery that supports and informs personal identity is given uneasy new meanings and importance in Ahlers's visual remixes. - Amazon.com
"Tomorrow's Man, Lynn Valley 9, combines familiar imagery from Pierson's vast repertoir - portraits, vintage 'Physique' magazines, celebrity promo shots, and oddball ephemera - alongside work from an eclectic range of contributions such as David Carrino, Florence Derive, Alex Jovanovich, Dan McCarthy, Ryan Sullivan, Evan Whale, and others. The unusual design and diverse imagery presents Pierson in a way never seen before and shows off his skill as an inventive editor." -- from www.bywaterbros.com (viewed 29 January 2014)

Hirschhorn's work is distinguished by a synthesis of sculptural concern, political commitment and critical thought. Most of the Swiss artist's works have been temporary and carried out in public. These include, among others, the 'Bataille Monument', which he created in 2002 during the documenta 11 exhibition in Kassel; as well as the street altars he constructed in various cities and dedicated to artists such as Piet Mondrian and Ingeborg Bachmann.
