Mathias Poledna: Version

Distanz has published Mathias Poledna: Version (25€, cloth), edited by Christopher Müller with an essay by Juliane Rebentisch (Amazon).

Last spring, the artist showed at Portikus, reviewed by Daniel Pies in Texte zur Kunst 78. The previous year, Poledna and Christopher Williams were at the Bonn Kunstverein, reviewed by Sven Lütticken in Texte zur Kunst 74. Crystal Palace (2006) was at the New Museum, the MCA Chicago, and the Hammer Museum, where it was reviewed by Jan Tumlir for Artforum.

Kunstforum has a dossier on Poledna, and Springerin published, among others, Helmut Draxler, “Working on What Has Been Missed” (2003). Pamela M. Lee wrote “History channel: the films of Mathias Poledna,” for Artforum (Nov. 2005), and Tumlir reviewed Poledna in 2003 for Frieze.

A 2001 exhibition at the Graz Kunstverein was reviewed by Matthias Dusini in Springerin, and Sabeth Buchmann in Texte zur Kunst 44.
