Inhaltsangabe: "From Gordon Matta-Clark to Lawrence Weiner, Bruce Nauman to Alison Knowles, the question of site locates itself in issues of public space, at the intersection of the imagined and the real, at the juncture of performance and architectural production. By anthologizing essays, documents, and interviews by leading critics, historians, and artists on issues of site-specificity, conceptualism, feminism, and architecture practice, Surface Tension reveals the connections between cultural production and the very spaces in which such work functions. These textual explorations are complemented by extensive documentation of related projects, both historical and contemporary, by artists, architects, and performance artists, including Coughing Piece, a never-before released 1961 audio work by Yoko Ono; an obscure audio work by Nauman from 1969; projects by Suzanne Lacy, a leading figure in the development of conceptual practice and public art; and an experimental text by Jane Rendell on psychic architectures. Conversations occur between the pages of Surface Tension, between theoretical analysis and modes of practice, that activate the publication as a site itself, one participating in a broad field of knowledge. Includes an audio CD of the sound art pieces."
Über den Autor:

Gordon Matta-Clark (1943 to 1978) showed at the Holly Solomon Gallery during his lifetime. His first posthumous retrospective traveled for 4 years to 14 venues, exponentially increasing the number of museums to have exhibited his work. Further solo shows have since been held at Paris's Jeu de Paume, London's Serpentine Gallery and New York's Dia Center for the Arts.
Born in 1941 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Bruce Nauman has been recognized since the early 1970s as one of the most innovative and provocative of America's contemporary artists. Nauman finds inspiration in the activities, speech, and materials of everyday life. Confronted with 'What to do' in his studio soon after graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1964 with a BFA, and then the University of California, Davis in 1966 with an MFA, Nauman had the simple but profound realization that "if I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art. At this point art became more of an activity and less of a product." Working in the diverse mediums of sculpture, video, film, printmaking, performance, and installation, Nauman concentrates less on the development of a characteristic style and more on the way in which a process or activity can transform or become a work of art. A survey of his diverse output demonstrates the alternately political, prosaic, spiritual, and crass methods by which Nauman examines life in all its gory details, mapping the human arc between life and death. The text from an early neon work proclaims: "The true artist helps the world by revealing mystic truths." Whether or not we--or even Nauman--agree with this statement, the underlying subtext of the piece emphasizes the way in which the audience, artist and culture at large are involved in the resonance a work of art will ultimately have. Nauman lives in New Mexico.
Michael Rakowitz's projects have appeared in exhibitions at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, the Queens Museum of Art, the Storefront for Art and Architecture, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, White Columns Gallery, and the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, all in New York; the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia; the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius, Lithuania; and ACC Galerie in Weimar, Germany, among others. He is the recipient of the 2002 Design 21 Grand Prix, sponsored by UNESCO and currently Professor of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. Rakowitz lives in Brooklyn.
Lawrence Weiner was born in 1942 in the Bronx, New York. Upon graduating from high school, he worked in a variety of jobs--on an oil tanker, on docks, and unloading railroad cars--and then traveled throughout North America before returning to New York, where he exhibited at the Seth Siegelaub Gallery in 1964 and 1965. Since the 1970s, wall installations consisting solely of words in a nondescript lettering have been a primary medium for Weiner. Solo exhibitions of his work have been mounted at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C., ICA London, Dia Center for the Arts in New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, among others. Weiner lives in New York and Amsterdam.
Alison Knowles was born in New York City in 1933, and graduated from the Pratt Institue of Fine Art in Brooklyn. In the 60s she worked for Special Editions Press doing silkscreens and was associated with the Fluxus movement. Her installtion The Big Book was realized in New York and toured Canada and Europe before finally collapsing in California in the mid-seventies. Her second walk-in book, The Book of Bean opened in Venice in 1983. Her computer instigated dwelling The House of Dust is on permanent display in California. Her other titles include Bread and Water, Spoken Texts, and A Bean Concordan.
Conceptual artist Michael Asher emerged in the late 1960s. He has had exhibitions at the Musee National d'Art Moderne, Paris; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, Holland, and The Art Institute of Chicago. Asher has also been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.
Brandon LaBelle is a sound artist and writer from Los Angeles. Working in the fields of sound, performance, and installation art since 1992, LaBelle aims to draw attention to the dynamics of sound as it is found within spaces and objects, public events and interactions, language and the body. Through a performative interaction with objects, found sound, and minimal electronics, the work draws attention to the quality and nature of what is already there through an emphasis on and displacement of listening and interaction, as a technological and architectural glitch. LaBelle's interest in site-specificity reflects a desire to consider the relationships and tensions between art and a broader social environment. His work has been featured in Bitstreams at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in Amplitude of Chance at Kawasaki City Museum Japan, at the 9th International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Liverpool and Manchester, Sampling Rage Festival in Berlin, the ICA London, Experimental Intermedia in New York, the Arizona State University Museum, and as part of Sound as Media at ICC in Tokyo. His work has been released on the SELEKTION , Fringes Recordings , Ground Fault , and La Bruit Secret labels.

How does contemporary art make use of architectural vocabularies and histories in the fabrication of objects and events? What is the ongoing role of conflicting models of site-specificity in contemporary art and architectur . **************************** Surface Tension est une anthologie de textes de théoriciens, d'architectes et d'artistes internationaux consacrés aux questions de l'espace public, des spécificités du lieu dans les pratiques artistiques contemporaines et de la dialectique entre la production culturelle et ses divers lieux de réception, dans le contexte de la mondialisation et des débats actuels autour de l'identité culturelle.
