> publication on

>
>
> Yves Klein "Selected Writings, 1928-1962"
>
> Originally published by the Tate Gallery in 1974, this collection of
> aphorisms, stories
> and photographs documents the trajectory of a lifetime's worth of thought from
> the great
> French conceptual artist. From the introduction: "Klein's work lends itself
> very well to
> this mode of presentation. Although immensely varied in its means it seems to
> divide into
> sections naturally and with unusual clarity as if it were the chapters of a
> book, each
> chapter pressing home one particular point. This characteristic does not, of
> course, rob
> Klein's art of subtlety, mystery or ambiguity-quite the reverse; it is perhaps
> the result
> of his trenchant, often theatrical or ritualistic modes of expression. Certain
> of his
> activities have, therefore, a quality which makes them at once memorable,
> mythical and
> self-defining. At the same time they are all concerned with a single
> constellation of
> ideas."
>
>
> Andreas Ammer: Selection of H?rspiele, 1993-1999.

> Crashing

> Heidegger-Bootleg

> work first

> People
> Like Us continues its pastiche of impressions of popular music from Europe and
> America
> from the 1920s thru to 1990s. Vicki Bennett's work is an examination of the
> affect of
> hearing well known tunes and lyrics in fragments, then putting those elements
> to play--
> resonating, intermingling and recombining with the listeners own associations
> and shards
> of memories. Full-color downloadable artwork and liner notes are available.

> download over the
> course of 2003. Briefly taken offline at the end of the project, it is now
> presented here
> in its entirety, complete with images and vast commentary on each selection.
