Coll., Film Implosion! Experimental Cinema in Switzerland, Revolver Publishing, 2017

La création de films expérimentaux en Suisse est prolifique et riche en surprises. Nombreux sont les créateurs qui ont rompu avec les méthodes appliquées habituellement lors de la réalisation d’un film en expérimentant directement sur le film, en produisant des films documentaires non-conformistes, des œuvres politiques ou féministes, des fictions et des installations vidéo. Pour eux, dont Dieter Meier, Fredi M. Murer ou Pipilotti Rist, le film expérimental marqua souvent le début d’une carrière qui allait se retrouver dans d'autres catégories de films ou d'art.

Catalogue publié à l'occasion de l'exposition Film Implosion! à Fri Art, Fribourg (21 novembre 2015 - 21 février 2016) et à Museum für Gestaltung, Zürich (3 février - 9 avril, 2017) qui lève le voile sur un pan méconnu de l'histoire de l'art helvétique en proposant la première exposition entièrement consacrée au cinéma expérimental en Suisse. Celle-ci présente un large panorama des pratiques d'expérimentation dans les médiums du cinéma en particulier, mais également de la vidéo, depuis les années 1960.

Édité par François Bovier, Balthazar Lovay, Sylvain Menétrey et Dan Soblach.

Julie Ault, Show & Tell: A Chronique of Group Material, Four Corners Books, 2010

This is the first monograph celebrating Group Material, the New York-based artists collaborative known for its socio-political art practice. Collated by former group members, the book charts the development, projects and contexts of the group’s activities, drawing heavily from the group's own archive and including original documents, photographs, drawings, correspondence, artefacts and texts. 45 projects from the group's lifetime (1979–1996) are represented through installation photography, original proposals, exhibition statements, press releases, and responses, while the emblematic exhibition project 'AIDS Timeline' is examined in detail, including in newly conducted interviews.

Dan Graham, Buildings and Signs 1978 Models, gta Verlag, 2015

Since the 1960s Dan Graham has been one of the most seminal protagonists in conceptual art. With his walk­-through glass Pavilions, he places architecturally de­ signed elements in space, thereby altering the viewer’s perceptions of its surround­ ing. The resulting estrangement effect enables the viewer to rediscover and re­ experience spatial dimensions. Among his recent projects is the commission of the Roof Garden on the Metropolitan Museum in New York which was made in cooperation with the landscape architect and ETH professor Günther Vogt. This exhibition at the ETH is the artist’s first institutional solo show in Zürich. The publication flesh­ es out Graham’s perspective on his model­-like works, in which art and architecture come together.

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.

Coll., Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia, Walker Art Center, 2015

Hippie Modernism examines the art, architecture and design of the counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue surveys the radical experiments that challenged societal norms while proposing new kinds of technological, ecological and political utopia. It includes the counter-design proposals of Victor Papanek and the anti-design polemics of Global Tools; the radical architectural visions of Archigram, Superstudio, Haus-Rucker-Co and ONYX; the installations of Ken Isaacs, Joan Hills, Mark Boyle, Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida; the experimental films of Jordan Belson, Bruce Conner and John Whitney; posters and prints by Emory Douglas, Corita Kent and Victor Moscoso; documentation of performances by the Diggers and the Cockettes; publications such as Oz and The Whole Earth Catalog; books by Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller; and much more.

While the turbulent social history of the 1960s is well known, its cultural production remains comparatively under-examined. In this substantial volume, scholars explore a range of practices such as radical architectural and anti-design movements emerging in Europe and North America; the print revolution in the graphic design of books, posters and magazines; and new forms of cultural practice that merged street theater and radical politics. Through a profusion of illustrations, interviews with figures including: Gerd Stern of USCO; Ken Isaacs; Gunther Zamp Kelp of Haus-Rucker-Co; Ron Williams and Woody Rainey of ONYX; Franco Raggi of Global Tools; Tony Martin; Clark Richert and Richard Kallweit of Drop City; as well as new scholarly writings, this book explores the conjunction of the countercultural ethos and the modernist desire to fuse art and life.

Who Chicago?, Sunderland Arts Centre, Ceolfrith Gallery, 1980

The genesis of this book is an exhibition of the ten artists now widely called "Chicago Imagists" and four of their antecedents. It amply demonstrates that 'during the last fifteen years a unique art has developed in Chicago. It is the product of a group of artists working in association with each other and sharing certain assumptions about the making of art; it is a movement. This group of artists, despite varying individual modes, produces work with a certain common formal and expressive characteristics; it is a style. While this style undoubtedly belongs to a certain tradition and owes seomthing to artistic attitudes prevalent among earlier Chicago artists, it does not resemble anything that came before it, not in Chicago, not elsewhere. 
The interest of this art lies not only in the extraordinary vitality, originality and import of the works themselves, but also in the degree to which apsects of this style have gained currency as art moves into the 80's.' 
(exerpted from introduction essay by Russel Bowman)

Artists in the show: Roger Brown, James Falconer, Art Green, Philip Hanson, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Ed Paschke, Christina Ramberg, Suellen Rocca, Barbara Rossi, H. C. Westermann, Karl Wisum, Joseph Yoakum, Ray Yoshida.
