    Writings 1991–2015

    Tom Burr and Florence Derieux

    Since the late 1980s, Tom Burr has been reusing appropriation strategies in his art. Not confined to his photographic and sculptural works, they also lend momentum to many of his writings. The artist has created assemblages of personal writings and sources, differing in nature and style, which he has used as both conceptual and aesthetic materials in his oeuvre. Thus, Burr extends his art praxis into the field of writing, and vice versa; art and language cannot be dissociated from each other. At times, the text precedes and anticipates the work; at others, it emanates and results from it; in most instances, it is an integral part of it. Words constitute the work.

    Thirty-seven texts—works, poems, autobiographical texts, and portraits—have been compiled for the first time in this publication. Written over a period of twenty-four years, they are presented chronologically, enabling us to fully appreciate the conceptual and visual coherence and richness of Burr's writings.

    Works 2003–2013

    Florence Derieux, Krist Gruijthuijsen, and Bettina Steinbrügge

    Over the past decade, artist Lisa Oppenheim has steadily developed a unique body of work exploring the usage of (historical) imagery. Balanced between appropriation and reconstruction, her work relies on substitutions applied to photographic and filmic records through which the historical and the present are transmitted and constituted through a language of today. One could define her work as an archaeology of time and visual culture. By exposing, or even reexposing, archival material, Oppenheim bridges the past and the present by introducing new meaning to these historical images, often resulting in film and photographic projects.

    Works 2003–2013 is Lisa Oppenheim's first monographic publication and is copublished with Grazer Kunstverein, Kunstverein in Hamburg, and FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, on occasion of the artist's exhibition “From Abigail to Jacob (Works 2004–2014)” at Grazer Kunstverein.
