Koon Woon - Water Chasing Water. New and Selected Poetry Kaya Press 2013 ISBN 9781885030498 Acqn 18902 Pb 15x20cm 120pp 2ills 11.95 Described by Bob Holman as "Li Po in drag, the voice of New America," Koon Woon exploded onto the poetry scene in the late 1990s. Largely self-taught, and struggling with both mental illness and homelessness, Seattle-based Woon wrote about the back alleys and tenement rooms on the margins of immigrant culture. His first collection, The Truth in Rented Rooms (included in this volume), won a PEN poetry prize and earned praise from Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Garrison Keillor. Water Chasing Water is Woon's second collection, and continues his exploration of loneliness and memory with poems and essays that seek out "This light / Without which existence is not detectable."

Return To The Postcolony - Specters Of Colonialism In Contemporary Art Sternberg Press 2013 ISBN 9783943365429 Acqn 22292 Pb 14x21cm 176pp 53col ills 16.95 In the wake of failed states, growing economic and political inequality, and the ongoing US- and NATO-led wars for resources, security, and economic dominance worldwide, contemporary artists are revisiting former European colonies, considering past injustices as they haunt the living yet remain repressed in European consciousness. With great timeliness, projects by Sven Augustijnen, Vincent Meessen, Zarina Bhimji, Renzo Martens, and Pieter Hugo have emerged during the fiftieth anniversary of independence for many African countries, inspiring a kind of reverse migrationa return to the postcolony, which drives an ethico-political as well as aesthetic set of imperatives: to learn to live with ghosts, and to do so more justly. T. J. Demos places contemporary art within the context of neoliberal globalization and what scholars have referred to as the colonial present. The analysis is complex and provocative, both for an understanding of the historical material as well as for the contemporary theoretical discourse. Return to the Postcolony is one of the most ambitious, intelligent, and readable texts on contemporary art related to the African context that I have read. Alexander Alberro, author of Conceptual Art and the Politics of Publicity The specters of colonialism continue to haunt the current global order. Far removed from universalist and ultimately empty demands for a global art history, T. J. Demos uses particular cases to explore the false universality of globalization as we know it. This is art writing at its best: determinate and determined. Sven Ltticken, author of Idols of the Market: Modern Iconoclasm and the Fundamentalist Spectacle

Here is a magical world, brimming with hidden narratives, in which human figures seem to be either ephemeral visitors or supernatural beings. The enigmatic, full-colour images display Okamotos precise craftsmanship and articulation; the pale-faced, lifesized puppets borrow aesthetically from butoh, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement. The figures resonate with silence and beauty, each captured in a moment of suspended animation, a perplexing game of storytelling taking place between master, puppet and photographer.

Part of a research project on viewpoints in aesthetics and film theory applied to contemporary art, this book asks how an artist or curator imagines the experience, movement, and mental processes of the viewer, and how this perspective influences the artwork, the way the viewer experiences it. The viewer is not only a spectator but a participant in situations and becomes a vital part of the artwork, its development and existence.

Swiss artist Rudolf de Crignis (1948-2006) began his career in video, photography and performance art. In 1985, a studio fellowship in New York introduced the artist to the work of American minimalist painters such as Robert Ryman, Ad Reinhardt, Agnes Martin and Barnett Newman, precipitating his shift to painting. De Crignis began by making paintings that at first appear to be a single hue, but which were actually begun as a finely worked, layered, white gesso surface. This substantial volume is the first to present a thorough overview of Crignis' austere and meditative work.

Alfredo Ramos Martinez & Modernismo Alfredo Ramos Martinez 2013 ISBN 9780615315201 Acqn 22110 Hb 28x33cm 252pp 214col ills 78 Edited by Marie Chambers. Forward by Louis Stern. Text by Margarita Nieto, Louis Stern. Mexican painter and muralist Alfredo Ramos Martinez (18711946), a less flamboyant contemporary of Diego Rivera and Jos Clemente Orozco, is finally beginning to be acknowledged for his special contribution to modern Mexican art. Alfredo Ramos Martinez & Modernismo is the first complete monograph on his work, and features rarely seen vintage photographs along with extensive biographical information. This beautifully illustrated and carefully researched book chronicles Ramos Martinezs decade in Paris as well as his years as the Director of the National School of Fine Arts in Mexico City. Additionally, the book reproduces perhaps the most authoritative collection of the exquisitely painted, iconic works Ramos Martinez produced during his final years in California. Executed in luscious primary colours and featuring powerful visions of the artists re-imagined homeland, these late paintings are as provocative as they are beautiful.
