The creations of Jeff Koons (born 1955) are at once immediately accessible and eloquently art historical. From basketball tanks to flower puppies, his instantly recognizable work frolics with banal imagery as much as it integrates cultural references such as Surrealism and Pop Art. Koons art revels in visual pleasure, but also in the power to affront. He has made his name as much for stainless-steel rabbits as he has with his sinister sculpture of Michael Jackson, or his sexually explicit photographic series with then-wife Cicciolina. The result is mega-artist status. An indisputable king of contemporary visual culture, Koons is lauded by collectors, institutions, and the public alike.

Andy Warhol (1928 1987) is hailed as the most important proponent of the Pop Art movement. A critical and creative observer of American society, he explored key themes of consumerism, materialism, media, and celebrity. Drawing on contemporary advertisements, comic strips, consumer products, and Hollywood s most famous faces, Warhol proposed a radical reevaluation of what constituted artistic subject matter. Through Warhol, a Campbell s soup can and Coca Cola bottle became as worthy of artistic status as any traditional still life. At the same time, Warhol reconfigured the role of the artist. Famously stating I want to be a machine, he systematically reduced the presence of his own authorship, working with mass-production methods and images, as well as dozens of assistants in a studio he dubbed The Factory.

Life lines: The 80s art star who put poverty, power, and racism on the wall An icon of 1980s New York, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988) first made his name under the graffiti tag "SAMO", before establishing his studio practice and catapulting to fast fame at the age of 20. Although his career lasted barely a decade, he remains a cult figure of artistic social commentary, and a trailblazer in the mediation of graffiti and gallery art. Basquiat''s work drew upon diverse sources and media to create an original and urgent artistic vocabulary, biting with critique against structures of power and racism. His practice merged abstraction and figuration, poetry and painting, while his influences spanned Greek, Roman, and African art, French poetry, jazz, and the work of artistic contemporaries such as Andy Warhol and Cy Twombly. The results are vivid, visceral mixtures of words, African emblems, cartoonish figures, daubs of bold color, and beyond.

Few photographers have created such a legacy as Edward Weston (1886-1958). After a decade of successfully making photographs with painterly soft-focus techniques, he became the driving figure behind a group of West Coast artists dubbed Group f/64, which pioneered the sharp, precise school of ''Straight Photography.'' With that stylistic leap, Weston''s career moved into high gear, creating photographs of extraordinary sensual realism, perfectly poised between compositional stillness and searing intensity. With nudes, nature studies, and myriad perspectives on the dramatic Californian landscape, Weston''s works aimed to locate the ''very substance and quintessence of the thing itself.'' In this concise monograph, we gather some of the finest Weston works to explore how he pursued and achieved this aim whether with a landscape, shell, or naked body.

Whether in his sumptuous images for advertising or his soft-hued nudes, Paul Outerbridge (1896-1958) was an alchemist of desire. Color was integral to his aesthetic allure, embracing the complex tri-color-carbro process to create a seductive surface of texture and tone. His quest was for ''artificial paradises'' a perfection of form, with a surreal edge. This concise monograph introduces Outerbridge''s unique aesthetic and its commercial and artistic trajectory, from his professional peak as New York''s highest-paid commercial photographer through to his retreat to Hollywood in the 1940s after a scandal over his erotic photography. With key examples from his oeuvre, the book explores Outerbridge''s innovative style through Cubist still life images, magazine photographs, and his controversial nudes, as well as his interaction with other avant-garde photographers, such as Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Man Ray. Along the way, we recognize Outerbridge''s particular ability to transform everyday objects into a

Between heaven and hell: Hieronymus Bosch''s meticulous visions of the grotesque, debauched, and divine. As cryptic as they are compelling, the masterpieces of Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) remain some of the most enduring enigmas of the art world. Their intricate, allegorical, and often startling content has captivated not only art historians, but also fashion designers, rock stars, writers, and punk rockers, as well as countless modern and contemporary artist successors. Although rooted in the Old Netherlandish tradition, Bosch developed a highly subjective, richly suggestive style to render both the celestial bliss of heaven and the grotesque tortures of hell, most famously and meticulously excecuted in The Garden of Earthly Delights. Here, as in his other known works, his artistic language combined religious humility with a razor-sharp wit, often playing off pictorial versions of contemporary proverbs or figures of speech. This book ties together the elusive threads of world.

Med Den Lille Havfrue og en række andre tidlige eventyr slog H.C. Andersen sit navn fast som dybt original forfatter allerede da han var i begyndelsen af trediverne. Fortællingen om pigen fra havet, der fulgte sine drømme og led en tragisk skæbne på landjorden, er udbredt over hele verden - en statue af hende er endda blevet en slags uofficielt nationalsymbol for Andersens hjemland, Danmark. Den japanske kunstner Yayoi Kusama har i vores tid nået en udbredelse, der på sit felt står mål med eventyrdigterens. Får man først øje på det, er det enestående i hvilken grad deres universer og bestræbelser som kunstnere stemmer overens. Vi har sammen med kunstneren valgt at lade Kusamas værker fra serien Love Forever omgive digterens ord. De to låner hinanden ny betydninger, som var de skabt for netop det.

Along with The Little Mermaid and a number of other early fairytales, H. C. Andersen established his name as a highly original author when he was just in his early thirties. The story of the girl from the sea who followed her dreams and suffered a tragic fate on land is known all over the world - a statue of her has even become a kind of unofficial national symbol for Andersen''s home country, Denmark. The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has in our time reached a status which in her field commensurates with the fairytale writer. Once you get your eyes on it, it is unique/striking in which degree their universes and efforts as artists are similar. Together with the artist, we have chosen to let Kusama''s works from her series Love Forever surround the poet''s words. They lend each other new meanings as if they were meant for just that.

Stedsans - 25 indgange til kunsten derude handler om kunsten i det offentlige rum. Gennem nedslag i 25 værker fra 1943 til i dag giver bogen indblik i de kunstneriske tilgange, som har været med til at forme kunsten i det offentlige rum i Danmark: Fra stillestående skulpturer til interaktive installationer, fra underspillede monumenter til topografiske pejlemærker. Bogen stiller skarpt på de diskussioner og faglige overvejelser, der knytter sig til kunsten derude. Den rejser spørgsmål som: Hvilke kunstneriske og politiske bevæggrunde ligger bag de ideer, som ender som skulpturer på byens pladser, eller som udsmykning af offentlige bygninger? Hvad kan kunsten, når den bevæger sig ud af museet? Hvad gør den ved stederne og hvad gør stederne ved den? Hvem er den skabt for, og hvem bestemmer, hvordan den skal se ud? Bogen udkommer i anledning af 50-året for Statens Kunstfond, som siden 1964 har været stærkt engageret i kunsten i det offentlige rum i Danmark. Den er redigeret af kunsthistoriker bogen.

Susanne Ussing bevægede sig på tværs af kunstarterne som keramiker, arkitekt og billedkunstner. Hun stod bl.a. bag en række opsigtsvækkende og provokerende udstillingsvinduer for Nørgaard paa Strøget samt en række innovative sanse- og børneudstillinger. Hun var en af 1970''ernes feministiske stemmer, og kunstkritiker Mikael Wivel har betegnet hende som en af tidens mest originale begavelser. Hun forholdt sig kritisk til sin samtid og udfordrede bl.a. det konventionelle boligbyggeri med byggeeksperimenter i Thylejren i 1970. Bogen rummer syv artikler af eksperter indenfor kunst, arkitektur og litteratur og kommer hele vejen rundt om Ussings værker fra 1960''erne og frem til hendes død i 1998. Desuden bidrager forfatteren Peter Laugesen, der kendte Susanne Ussing personligt, med et nyskrevet digt. Bogen kaster nyt lys på en markant skikkelse i dansk kunsthistorie og henvender sig til alle, der interesserer sig for billedkunst og arkitektur og alt det midt imellem.

There is a remarkable paucity of pictorial material to draw on when discussing human rights and the way they are respected or infringed, yet we are deluged everyday in every medium with images that openly show violence. The result is a surfeit of cynicism. The Face of Human Rights presents no such exotic cruelty; rather, the photographs it gathers together capture injustice and evoke real feelings, inviting the reader to participate in an emotionally and intellectually sincere manner. Images of normality in a peaceful world complete the picture and, though they risk losing the reader too tuned into spectacle, they are worth the risk. The Face of Human Rights takes a novel approach to a critical topic, interspersing a visual interpretation of individual legal aspects with textual collages from historical and current human rights discussions. It offers facts and figures, and acknowledges the efforts governmental and non-governmental organizations are making to defend human rights and stamp out their
