Blanca Gutiérrez Galindo , “En la República Democrática Alemana la pintura es más alemana”

This volume presents three articles that reflect on the reception of the art legacy of the GDR in the years following the Reunification of Germany. The aim is to offer Spanish speaking readers a wider perspective of the art scene in Germany that is no longer restricted to the art of the former West Germany. The first article deals with the most important exhibitions of painting of the GDR. The second one examines the case of the painter Bernhard Heisig, whose numerous paintings have been interpreted by West German historians as an Aufarbeitung der Vergangenheit. The third one gives an overview of the art scene in the 1940s in the GDR.

Maria Effinger, Stephan Hoppe, Harald Klinke, Bernd Krysmanski (Hrsg.), Von analogen und digitalen Zugängen zur Kunst. Festschrift für Hubertus Kohle zum 60. Geburtstag

Hubertus Kohle is an art historian and professor who has made a name for himself in Germany especially with his research on the art of the European Enlightenment and the nineteenth century. He opened up his discipline early on to digital processes and concepts and has been committed to electronic publishing in Open Access for years. As one of the two directors of the renowned DFG Priority Programme "The Digital Image", he is currently also working on a multidisciplinary approach to the subject of the digital. On the occasion of his 60th birthday, he was honoured by numerous friends and academic companions with this commemorative publication, the content of which ties in with the focal points of his work - from the analogue beginnings dedicated to the art of the Age of Enlightenment to the current field of "digital art history". This commemorative volume is understood as an experimental online publication that is presented first to the birthday celebrant in a purely virtual version.

Angela Zieger, „Ich bereite vor: eine Ausstellung nach meinem Tode.“ Zum grafischen, malerischen und kalligrafischen Werk von F.H. Ernst Schneidler

Friedrich Hermann Ernst Schneidler’s (1882 – 1956) work is defined by his creation as a book artist, commercial artist and professor of fonts and graphic design; it is what he is particularly renowned for within the literary world. However, in his 50 yearlong creative period, he also produces a vast corpus of fine art pieces on the sidelines to his daily work - a corpus he mostly keeps concealed from the public. Only a few of his closest confidants are lucky enough to be permitted a glance at these works, he devotes his nights and vacations to.
Therefore, this book mainly discusses Schneidler’s rather under researched alternative corpus. How it came into being will be linked to a context of art history and biographically as well as historically analyzed.

Aussehen und Material von Reisegepäck passten sich in den letzten 250 Jahren den veränderten Verkehrsmitteln und Bedürfnissen einer zunehmend mobileren Gesellschaft an. Die 23 Beiträge des Ausstellungsbegleitbandes präsentieren die breite Palette an Gepäckstücken von der Gesindetruhe über den Schrankkoffer bis zu Bord-Case und Plastiktüte und bilden nahezu alle Exponate der Ausstellung zumeist in Farbe ab.
Erstmals sind Materialität, Funktionalität und zeitliche Einordnung gemeinsam erfasst. Unterschiedlichste Facetten von „Reisebegleitern“ wie Kofferwerbung, der Gepäckverkehr bei der Bahn, Militärgepäck, der Koffer im Museum, Gepäckversicherung, das Schreiben auf Reisen oder umfangreiche Reiseservice erscheinen in ihrem jeweiligen kulturgeschichtlichen Kontext. Im Anhang sind nach dem Ausstellungsplan die technischen Daten der Exponate erfasst.

Peter Daners, Frederik Poppe, Annika Schank, Melanie Schmitt (Hrsg.), Wechselwirkungen. Kunst im Kontext der Inklusionsdebatte

This conference volume deals with the issue of art and inclusion from interdisciplinary perspectives: Experts from museums as well as from the fields of Rehabilitation Sciences, Art Theory and Disability Studies discuss the artistic production, presentation, mediation and reception of works by artists in need of assistance. In addition to academic research the book also contains methodological reflections: Artist collectives and studios present their working methods and networks, drawing on sample projects they have completed. Questions concerning curatorial practice, inclusive exhibition concepts and the role of the institutions are addressed as well as inclusive approaches to art education. Interviews and reviews introduce the reader to some artists in need of assistance and provide an insight into their work.
