Andrea Büttner for Parkett 97


Piano Stool (silkscreen), 2015
Silkscreen in 4 colors


Piano Stool, 2015
Beech wood, black paint, yellow handwoven silk and wool, two square handles in natural pine

Andrea Büttner


Working across a wide range of media, Andrea Büttner investigates faith, shame, and the nature of representation itself. Here Julia Bryan-Wilson considers the roles of littleness and queerness in her practice; Christoph Menke focuses on her reimagining of Kant’s writing through images; and Aram Moshayedi studies her longtime engagement with the woodcut.

For her Parkett Edition, Andrea Büttner has made “Piano Stool” in a vibrant 4 color print version, as well as a chair made of beech wood and upholstered with yellow handwoven silk and wool.

“Büttner probes ‘tricky’ thresholds not often explicitly explored in contemporary art—the blurry line between amateur making and fine art production, for instance, or the unexpected relationship between marginal religious experiences and philosophies of modernist contemplation.” —Julia Bryan-Wilson

Autoconclusión, 2015

Wooden briefcase, with 34 painted bamboo sticks, and a 7-color silkscreen

Abraham Cruzvillegas


Abraham Cruzvillegas’ precarious sculptures echo the improvised methods of construction found in settlements across Latin America. In this issue, Tom McDonough contemplates the artist’s negotiation of radically different economic systems; Doryun Chong maps connections between Mexico and Korea; and Aline Hernández discusses the politics of resistance that underlie his work.

For his Parkett Edition, Abraham Cruzvillegas has made “Autoconclusión”, comprising of an interactive “boîte”, a wooden briefcase with thirty four bamboo sticks in thirty four different colors, and a separate 7-color silkscreen inserted in the briefcase.

“The significance of Autoconstrucción is its lesson in how human activity produces forms within and in spite of the real social conditions of uneven development that their producers, including the artist, must necessarily inhabit.” —Tom McDonough

Extinction on the Table, 2015

Two UV prints on both sides of one sheet of white nitrile rubber

Camille Henrot


Camille Henrot carves stunning visual narratives out of the chaotic jumble of information overload, remixing images and histories across time and space. Joshua A. Bell looks at the Oceanic philosophies that inform her work; Diedrich Diederichsen underlines how the loss of an epistemological center is made present; and D. Graham Burnett surfs the web while watching her 2013 masterpiece Grosse Fatigue.

For her Parkett Edition, Camille Henrot has created “Extinction on the Table”, a striking double sided work on thick nitrile rubber that is part print part sculpture.

“Henrot consistently places the many strands in her work—different media, genres, associative registers—in counterpoint, a poignant strategy that recalls the great traditions of cinema.” —Diedrich Diederichsen

Hito Steyerl for Parkett 97

Hito Steyerl for Parkett 97


Gosprom, 2015
Silkscreen in 7 colors

Hito Steyerl


Hito Steyerl’s videos interweave personal histories, popular culture, and political movements as they trace the circulation of images and the slippage of their signification. Ed Halter places the artist in a lineage of filmmakers and analyzes how her work diverges; Brian Droitcour Googles her; and Linda Stupart examines the artist’s use of her self as material.

For her Parkett Edition, Hito Steyerl has made “Gosprom”, an impactful almost 3-D like silkscreen in seven colors that references constructivist Soviet architecture.
› More info can be seen here.


“Steyerl’s recent films have concerned themselves ever more with the digital spaces where circulationism now occurs, stressing the two-dimensional surface of the computer screen.” —Ed Halter

› Parkett vol. 97


Also in this issue:


Konrad Bitterli views Hubbard/Birchler’s latest film trilogy; Ory Dessau vaunts the paintings of Markus Döbeli; and Parkett Editor Mark Welzel visits “Situations”, a series of exhibitions organized by Fotomuseum Winterthur and presented across multiple platforms.
