Dan Graham, Pavilions: a guide, Art Metropole, 2009

Since the ‘60s, Dan Graham has been making radical work in print, video, performance, and architectural installation. In the late ‘70s he began designing his pavilions, structures in steel and semi-reflective glass that comment on local architecture and offer rich social moments for people to reflect on the world around them. Compiled by Josh Thorpe, this pocket guide book is a simple guide to the dozens of Graham’s pavilions available around the world. Includes an introduction and interview with the artist by Josh Thorpe.

Dan Graham, Rock/Music Writings, Primary Information, 2009

Rock/Music Writings collects Dan Graham’s influential writings about rock and roll music and its cultural impact. First published in 2009, Rock/Music Writings includes thirteen essays written between 1968 and 1988, most of which were originally printed in small magazines or journals, including Extensions, Fusion, REAL LIFE, and ZG.

Graham was a friend and supporter of many musicians active in the No Wave scene that was centered around New York City in the late ’70s. In addition to collaborating with musicians during this period, Graham created “Rock My Religion,” a video that demonstrates parallels between rock music culture and religious rituals, such as Shaker dances and revivalist meetings. The work’s related text, also titled “Rock My Religion,” is included in Rock/Music Writings, along with texts such as “The End of Liberalism,” “New Wave Rock and the Feminine,” “McLaren’s Children,” and “Artist as Producer.” These texts examine the lyrics and backgrounds of bands like The Beatles, The Kinks, Devo, The Ramones, the Patti Smith Group, the Sex Pistols, and Bow Wow Wow, relating them to consumerism and visual art movements, including Abstract Expressionism and Pop art.

Fredi Fischli, Niels Olsen, Theater Objects, gta Verlag, 2015

Variously designed stages form the nexus between art and architecture in the exhibition Theater Objects: A Stage for Architecture and Art. They provide theatrical tableaux in which internationally renowned artists and architects present them­ selves in the field of interplay between the two disciplines. Josep Lluís Mateo and Christian Kerez, for example, use the stages to reveal their sources of inspiration, whether books or films, which in turn reflects the format of this exhibition of architecture. The book Theater Objects takes up these ideas and develops them in a large number of contributions.
