Dario Gamboni

Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH | E-Books


In this notebook, Dario Gamboni embarks on the trail of the notoriously restless European 19th-century artist Paul Gauguin. During the “period of incubation” that the artist customarily underwent after arriving in a new environment, such as Brittany, New Zealand, or Tahiti, he drew in order to familiarize himself with the place. Gamboni followed Gauguin’s traces, capturing his own observations in photographs, drawings, and notes. The resulting comparisons, elaborated in extensive captions, bear witness to the intensive approach made by the author toward Gauguin’s way of working and thinking. In his introduction, Gamboni delves into processes of perception and cognition, employing various techniques—among them the note-taking after Gauguin’s notes—that he applies in his own practice, techniques that lead him to a form of imitative agency, witnessing witness.

Dario Gamboni (*1954) is Professor of Art History at the University of Geneva.

Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev

Hatje Cantz Verlag GmbH | E-Books


Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev reflects on the historical as well as personal notion of destruction and art, as well as on the potential healing power that art can have. Guiding us through a web of etymological, historical, philosophical, personal, and art historical references, she takes the reader from Melanie Klein’s thinking about the dyadic relationship between mother and child and Walter Benjamin’s reflection on Klee’s Angelus Novus, to object studies starting with Man Ray’s metronomes, his Objects of Destruction, and Lee Miller’s photographs from the end of World War II, to Gustav Metzger’s “Manifesto of Auto-Destruction,” to melted objects from the Beirut National Museum and the blown-up Bamiyan Buddhas, which are accompanied by Michael Petzet’s report of ICOMOS’s response to the destroyed monuments, followed by artworks by Michael Rakowitz and drawings with poems by Anna Boghiguian, in addition to a postscript by art historian Dario Gamboni on the destruction of art, the concept of “world heritage,” and the legislation around it. For Christov-Bakargiev, “the sphere of art is poised on the edge of the private and of history, and becomes the location where one can experiment the possibilities of being on the edge of the anthropocentric, where the rubble lies.”

Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev (*1957) is Artistic Director of dOCUMENTA (13).
