Twelve chapters then chart the various stages of the exhibition process in invaluable detail and clear, informative language from initial concept to writing contracts and loan requests, putting together budgets and schedules, producing exhibition catalogues and interpretation materials, designing gallery spaces, working with artists, lenders and art handlers, organizing private views, and documenting and evaluating a show.

„Kuratieren“ ist zu einer coolen Parole geworden – der Begriff expandiert vom Metier der Museumsleute in alle Lebensbereiche und erfasst ein Lebensgefühl, in dem nahezu alles zur Kunstform wird. Mit unwiderstehlichem Elan schildert Hans Ulrich Obrist, Guru der Kunstszene und der wohl einflussreichste Kurator der Welt, worum es bei seiner Arbeit geht. Hans Ulrich Obrist scheint überall zu sein – er ist auf allen Kontinenten aktiv, arbeitet stets an mehreren Ausstellungen gleichzeitig und kennt vermutlich mehr Künstler als jeder andere lebende Zeitgenosse. Doch worum geht es überhaupt, wenn eine Ausstellung gemacht wird? Welche Bedeutung hat dieser gewaltige Energiestrom der Kunstszene für das Verständnis unserer Gegenwart? Und was ist die Philosophie hinter dem „Kuratieren“? Obrist, der mit 23 Jahren seine erste Ausstellung in seiner Küche kuratiert hat, erzählt von seinem Weg, von befreundeten Künstlern wie Gerhard Richter, Peter Fischli und David Weiss oder Alighiero Boetti und vom obsessiven Leben mit der Kunst und für die Kunst.

In a new edition, Karin Tebben presents Nordau’s best-known work “Degeneration” (“Entartung,” 1892/93), which focuses on the modern pathologies of artistic modernism. Together with Nietzsche, Nordau is one of the most influential thought leaders of a tradition that, as it developed further, had a problematic influence not only on the National Socialist organizers of the book burnings and of the “Entartete Kunst” (Degenerate Art) exhibition of 1937, but also on the Bolshevist persecution of the artistic modern or on Georg Lukács’ polemic against the avant-garde modern.

Aesthetics and economic value have been intertwined for centuries, but the recent increase in investment in art suggests that the balance between the two may be changing. This intriguing book examines the factors that impact on today’s expanded art market and the relationship between contemporary art and economics. The book’s three essays focus on works that engage speculative value, investigate the commercial aspects of exhibition and display, explore alternative and non-profit based economies, and shed light on the role of the collector. The works included—by such artists as Louise Lawler, Robert Morris, and Hans Haacke—deal directly with the economic conditions of art’s production, reception, and circulation. There is also an interview with art advisor Diego Cortez, who offers a distinctive perspective on the evolution of the current art market and the business of mediating between collectors and dealers.
