Elizabeth Peyton HERE SHE COMES NOW
This publication groups together Elizabeth Peyton's portraits of musicians such as David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Pete Doherty, Jonas Kaufmann and Jessye Norman in moments of performance for the first time. Expressed in these portraits is Peyton's intensive focus on the vulnerable and at the same time expressive moment of artistic creativity: that moment in which the musician appears before their audience. The photographs, snapshots from live performances that underlie most of her works, are also presented in the exhibition catalogue alongside the artist's works and with equal weighting. The catalogue brings together oil paintings and works on paper from the last 20 years.

BILDERBEDARF. Braucht Gesellschaft Kunst?/ The Civic and the Arts
The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition "BILDERBEDARF. The Civic and the Arts." (20.10.2012- 17.02.2013) at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden.
"This exhibition puts forth the idea that an element of the public mandate of a publicly funded art institution consists in meeting the existing demand for images and symbols relevant to the processes that civil society is undergoing. It does not, however, intend to claim that every artist whose work is politically or socially engaged has a correspondingly direct effect on society. Rather, artists and curators often examine significant issues without being able to determine if this has an impact. A fact that is often used as proof, not least by critics and journalists, of the inability of art to influence society. However, anyone looking to the recent past will know better."

ON TASTE – the good, the bad and the really expensive
At a time in which such terms and “good taste“ or “bad taste“ have become all but exchangeable, it can be the staging or presentation of a consumer good or work of art that determines how desirable something is. What seems to matter most is expensive taste. Today, more than ever before, this is what serves to achieve socioeconomic differentiation. Unlike during the founding years of first museums in Germany, “taste” no longer serves the aesthetic education of the middle classes but has rather evolved into a category of manipulated preferences. The exhibition broaches this issue primarily by means of contemporary positions.
A catalogue featuring texts by Johan Holten, Hendrik Bündge and Dirk Teuber , as well as numerous images, was published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne, 152 pages, (German / English) on the occasion of the first exhibition curated by Johan Holten.
This is the first catalogue published under the direction of Johan Holten. With texts by Johan Holten, Hendrik Bündge and Dirk Teuber, Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Cologne, 152 pages, German / English with numerous illustrations.
