Ed. Astrid Ihle et al.

Street Life

Die Straße in der Kunst von Kirchner bis Streuli - The Street in Art from Kirchner to Streuli
The significance of the street is complex: it is a place of representation, self-dramatisation and communication, of resistance and protest. In this lavishly illustrated volume we encounter the bandwidth of this highly topical subject and its implementation in painting, graphics, photography, film, performance and installation during the 20th and 21st centuries.

Imagining Sculpture

A Short Conjectural History
Sculpture is just a word, an English word, which elicits an image in the mind’s eye. Sculpture is a European idea. In China, on the other hand, statues, stele, and other figural objects were made for millennia without being thought of as Sculpture. There was no Sculpture in China. "Imagining Sculpture" is the story of this something that did not exist.

The Other Kabul

Remains of the Garden
Kabul was once famous for being a city of blossoming gardens. Today our perception of the Afghan capital is dominated by images of suffering and destruction. Considering Kabul’s gardens as part of its cultural heritage, Afghan and non-Afghan artists reflect on a different Kabul, without ignoring the crises of the past and present.

Kubra Khademi

Political Bodies
Kubra Khademi (b. 1989) lives in Paris and focuses in her work on her life as a woman and a person with direct experience as a refugee. This makes it both political and highly topical. Multi-faceted themes pervade her art, including her function as a mouthpiece and as an element in the fight for the fundamental rights of women, as well as artistic work in exile and in a Muslim society.
