"When painters write, it is not a question of valuations, but a nutritional question." (Hans Platschek 1962)
"The painter, essayist and art critic Hans Platschek would have celebrated his 100th birthday in March 2023. The research of all those involved in this project offers a new perspective of an extremely productive 20th century personality with a comprehensive education, cosmopolitan vision and a cultural network of international reach. Platschek's journalistic activity motivated several generations of artists and cultural workers who were open to a discursive debate about aesthetic practice and theory, the art business, the museum, the market and the media". (Claus Mewes/Selima Niggl)

»es gibt im Moment keine besseren Künstler als uns in Deutschland«
HP Zimmer, Tagebuch 1957–1965 

2023. 248 Pages, 100 Ills.
Paperback wit flaps

This book presents representative excerpts from the manuscript, which was reviewed by the artist in the early 1990s. Stylistically aware and (self-) critical, Zimmer comments on the cultural and social climate of postwar Germany. He provides insights into the contemporary German art scene and its European network with close ties to the Situationist International. The debates recorded by Zimmer in his diaries – about painting and artistic freedom as well as revolution, boxing matches, crime series, and the threat of nuclear war – are still strangely relevant to us today.

UWE LAUSEN. Übermorgen bin ich tot

Selima Niggl in the series "the future of the past", edited by Axel Heil, vol. 7, Verlag Walther König, Cologne 2021

21.7 x 31.6 cm. 352 p. with 390 mostly coloured, partly full-page illustrations, exhib. list, bibliography, index, hardcover.

Uwe Lausen, the wunderkind, the early successful artist who was "ruined" by drugs and "ennobled" by suicide, seems to fit the cliché of the tragically failed genius. But as effective as such labelling may be for the public, it is of little help when it comes to examining the work and thinking of the artist, who was always up to date as a member of the Situationist International. Anyone who wants to find out more about Lausen's multifaceted work and dazzling personality should read this meticulously researched and richly illustrated monograph, which shows why Lausen in particular became an "artists' artist" whose works and seemingly uncompromising attitude continue to fascinate artists to this day.
