Carsten Holler: Over There
Carsten Holler has created a world that is equal parts laboratory and fun house. He explores important themes such as architecture, childhood, love, happiness, hallucination, and the future. Trained as a scientist, his work often takes the form of experiments designed to test the limits of human sensorial experience through carefully controlled situations.
The exhibition presents a selection of pieces that highlight the different visual or experiential dimensions of Holler's groundbreaking work. A number of signature works are presented, including his stroboscopic light installations, disorienting architectural environments, and a mirrored carousel.
This beautifully illustrated book is organized around approximately twenty significant themes developed in his work. Each of the themes is explored by an extraordinary group of curators and writers, including Daniel Birnbaum, Gary Carrion-Murayari, Germano Celant, Lynne Cooke, Hal Foster, Massimiliano Gioni, Jessica Morgan, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Philippe Parreno, Gloria Sutton, and Rosemarie Trockel, among many others.
This book is in association with the New Museum.

Olafur Eliasson
Young sculptor, photographer and installation artist Olafur Eliasson (b.1967) creates works that explore the relationship between human beings, nature and technology. Based in Berlin, the artist rebuilds in the gallery fragments of the environment: icebergs at the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and windmills at the Louisiana Museum in Humlebaek, Denmark. For Eliasson, immaterial sensations such as temperature, smell, taste, air and magnetic waves become sculptural elements when presented in an artistic context. Nominated in 2002 for the prestigious Hugo Boss prize, Eliasson has become a favourite in the sphere of contemporary art in recent Biennales. In her Survey, curator Madeleine Grynsztejn examines the unique position of this new artist, overlapping technological and artistic innovation in the creation of his art. Curator and critic Daniel Birnbaum discusses with the artist the role of location and the immediate environment in both his gallery (indoor) and remote-site (outdoor) work. In his Focus, architectural theorist Michael Speaks looks at the work Green River (1998), particularly in relation to Antonioni's 1964 film, Red Desert. The artist has selected an extract from Henri Bergson's Creative Evolution (1907) dealing with our subjective, visual response to nature, a central theme in the artist's own work. Eliasson's writings include essays on that most banal of topics, the weather, and an open letter entitled 'Dear Everybody', addressed to viewers of his sensual, layered artworks.

Defining Contemporary Art: 25 Years in 200 Pivotal Artworks

Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s - 60s
Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow, 1950s-60s, is the first large-scale historical survey in the United States dedicated to the German artist group Zero (1957-66). Founded by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene, joined by Gunther Uecker in 1961, the group expanded to include ZERO, an international network of like-minded artists who shared the groups aspiration to redefine art in the aftermath of World War II. Featuring more than thirty artists from nine countries, the catalogue explores the experimental practices developed by this extensive network of artists whose work anticipated aspects of Land art, Minimalism, and Conceptual art. The publication is organized around points of intersection, exchange, and collaboration that defined these artists shared history. Among the themes explored are the establishment of new definitions of painting; the introduction of movement and light as both formal and idea-based aspects of art; the use of space as subject and material; the interrogation of the relationship between nature, technology, and humankind; and the production of live actions or demonstrations. At once a snapshot of a specific group and a portrait of a generation, this title celebrates the pioneering nature of both the art and the transnational vision advanced by the Zero network.

Olafur Eliasson: Reality Machines
Olafur Eliasson: Reality machines was conceived and designed by Irma Boom, one of the world's most celebrated graphic designers, to bring to life in book form the artwork and ideas of Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The exhibition catalogue - published by Moderna Museet and Koenig Books on the occasion of the exhibition Verklighetsmaskiner / Reality machines, at Moderna Museet in Stockholm - takes the form of an artist's book in which essays and images interact with tactile papers and transparent films. Eliasson's diverse artworks - in sculpture, painting, photography, film, and installations - have been exhibited widely throughout the world. His art is driven by a deep interest in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self, and by his conviction that art offers a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world. Not limited to the confines of the museum and gallery, his practice engages the broader public sphere through architectural projects and interventions in civic space. This catalogue features illuminating essays by Timothy Morton, philosopher and specialist in ecology and object-oriented ontology, and Matilda Olof-Ors, curator at Moderna Museet in Stockholm, as well as a conversation between Eliasson and Daniel Birnbaum, director of Moderna Museet. Anders Sune Berg's installation photography presents vivid views of the exhibition Verklighetsmaskiner / Reality machines at Moderna Museet.

Olafur Eliasson: Inner City Out
One of the most important artists of his generation, Olafur Eliasson (born 1967) creates immersive environments and spectacular public installations that probe the cognitive aspects of vision and transform the act of looking into a social experience. Merging art and science, Eliasson engages the observer as participant, challenging the passive viewing experience by utilizing such elements as temperature, smell, moisture and light to trigger physical sensations. Olafur Eliasson: Inner City Out documents the artist's first project in Berlin, where he has lived and worked for many years. Designed for the Martin-Gropius-Bau, and curated by Daniel Birnbaum, it examines the relationship between the museum and the city, bridging the two through ephemeral installations placed in various locations throughout the city as well as within the museum itself.

Doug Aitken
American video and installation artist Doug Aitken (b.1968) exploded onto the international art scene with his multi-screen work electric earth, which captivated audiences at the Venice and Whitney biennales in 1999. This work focused on the bizarre nocturnal experiences of a young man exploring the edges of Los Angeles, presenting dream-like sequences that rearrange the linear flow of narrative into a series of unforgettable, disjointed photographic tableaux. Like much of his work, it contrasts the high-tech speed of contemporary daily life with the monotony of the urban landscape. In other works he has explored the eerie, desterted atmosphere of Jonestown, Guyana, the site of the notorious mass suicide of religious cultists (monsoon, 1997); a remote diamond-mining region of Namibia, closed to outsiders since 1908 (diamond sea, 1997); and the collective dreams of India's Bollywood film industry (into the sun, 1999). Portraying some of contemporary art's most beautiful imagery, Aitken's installations encircle the viewer, creating a suspended, hyperreal portrait of contemporary life. In the survey, curator and critic Daniel Birnbaum sets Aitken's art within the context of contemporary philosophy and the work of other recent artists who have explored expanded notions of time and space. In the Interview, Frieze publisher and critic Amanda Sharp discusses the artist's working methods, while in the Focus section critic Jorg Heiser looks at Aitken's i am in you (2000), a five-screen work centring on the imaginative experiences of a young girl. For his Artist's Choice Aitken has selected a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, whose description of altered realities through the distortions of mirrors and memory echoes the artist's own interests. Artist's Writings include Aitken's retelling of an unusual story he once heard from strangers, which served as the basis for subsequent video work.
