Following on from her bestselling book How to Survive Modern Art, Susie Hodge once again tackles a dauntingly complex subject: how can we evaluate, explore and respond to art? With the power to affect us all, art can be enjoyed in many different ways. Its impact can be both straightforward and unexpected. It can change our minds or our attitudes, provoke anger or shock, or make us laugh or cry. It can intimidate, disconcert, pose conundrums or puzzles, or instruct or enlighten. Ultimately, it offers a window on society s values and ideals, and every work of art expresses the perceptions and memories of the artist who created it. In her characteristically engaging style, Susie Hodge shows us how to interpret and respond to a broad variety of artwork and artists philosophies. This enormously stimulating book enriches our experience of art, and in the process enhances our own creativity.

Russian-born conceptual artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov are among the most celebrated artists of their generation. Known for their pioneering large-scale environments and installations, the artists’ work fuses the everyday with the conceptual. Deeply rooted in the visual culture of Soviet society yet speaking equally to universal themes, their work is characterised by a sense of melancholia and humour. Celebrating five decades of work, this exhibition catalogue traces a line from Ilya Kabakov’s early paintings, drawings, albums and installations to the collaborative projects Ilya and Emilia have created together since 1987, which include immersive installations and architectural models. Exploring the themes of failed utopia and political disillusionment that run through their work, as well as fantasies of escape and transcendence, it also examines the relationship between aesthetics and politics, and the way painting has remained a central feature of their work in ever- diverse forms. Fully illustrated with over 100 works, a selection of texts from leading art writers and historians, descriptive captions and the artists’ own writings interspersed throughout, this book provides an insight into a career full of innovation and originality.

Born in Berlin in 1891, John Heartfield, along with George Grosz, is widely considered to have invented photomontage, a technique of cutting up and manipulating photographs. During the 1930s Heartfield produced some of the most visually arresting and politically hard-hitting artwork of the twentieth century, appropriating the widely circulated propaganda of the time to create a biting critique of contemporary politics. This lavishly illustrated, large-format survey of his work, the most authoritative yet published, draws on the superlative collections of the Academie der Kunst, Berlin, and the David King collection at Tate Modern. Including more than 150 full-colour reproductions of Heartfield’s powerful work, both in its original and printed forms, as well as documentary photographs and recollections from Heartfield’s surviving family members, the book features a lively introduction by David King, as well as illuminating short texts on many of the works. Heartfield’s astonishing visual broadsides, aimed at the abuse and misuse of power, and part of his lifelong wish to create a fairer and more peaceful world, are every bit as relevant and cutting-edge today as when they were first published. David King is the author of The Commissar Vanishes, Red Star Over Russia, and Russian Revolutionary Posters. He was art editor of the Sunday Times between 1965 and 1975 and is the owner of one of the world’s pre-eminent collection of Russian artefacts. Ernst Volland is an artist and a photography collector.

Created in close collaboration with the artist, this book explores in detail the artistic processes involved in creating Phillipe Parreno’s Anywhen, 2016. It features a fully illustrated survey of Parreno’s life and work with stunning photographs and an in-depth interview with curator Andrea Lissoni, making it an ideal accompaniment to the exhibition. Philippe Parreno is a leading French artist who works across film, video, sound, sculpture, performance and information technology. His work explores the borders between reality and fiction, and he sees his exhibitions as choreographed spaces that follow a score, during which a series of different events unfold. These kaleidoscopic environments redefine the gallery-going experience, and recent projects have included the vast installation H{N)Y P N(Y}OSIS at Park Avenue Armory, New York (2015), and the immersive Anywhen in the Turbine Hall, Tate Modern, October 2016. Andrea Lissoni is Senior Curator, International Art (Film) at Tate Modern.

Natalia Goncharova (1881-1962) was the leading female artist of the Russian avant-garde and a key figure of the modernist era. She embraced with a complete openness a wide range of artistic styles, traditions and media. From sculpture and painting, printmaking and book illustration, to fashion and innovative cinema, she applied the spirit of `everythingness' (Toutisme) to her creative practice. After gaining fame for her early experiments with abstraction, she earned further international renown for her work for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes following her emigration to Paris in 1914. This publication will consider the entire spectrum of Goncharova's creative practice. An important focus will be her 1913 exhibition in Moscow at which she displayed over 350 paintings along with the numerous drawings, studies, prints and designs, demonstrating her prolific and prodigious talent. It will also address how Goncharova was unafraid to explore subjects in her art that were considered taboo for a gentile woman of pre-war Europe, such as the female nude, paganism and marginalised cultures. The artist caused controversy with her biblical scenes, which were rendered in intense and earthly manner that reflected her personal experiences in the period leading to the outbreak of the First World War. Her involvement in performative practices of the futurist movement in Russia went along with her own ground-breaking experiments with non-figurative forms. It was her work that largely contributed to elevating theatre design and costume-making into an art form. Essays by leading experts and lavish illustrations will bring to a new audience the diverse work of this modernist artist whose oeuvre blazed the path of Russian avant-garde painting, ground-breaking European theatre design and modernist graphic design.

The British Artists series is a major collection of fully illustrated guides to the lives and careers of influential British artists, from the eighteenth century onwards. As a painter, illustrator and critic, Paul Nash (1889 1946) was at the forefront of British art in the first half of the twentieth century. Inspired by William Blake, Samuel Palmer and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he produced some of the greatest paintings of the First and Second World Wars. In the intervening years he helped introduce the British avantgarde to the thrilling potential of European modernism, experimenting with abstraction and helping to establish the Surrealist movement in Britain. In this thoughtful and comprehensive survey, David Boyd Haycock explores the full course of Nash s eventful career, his profound love of the English landscape, and the psychological forces that led him to pursue a lifelong vision of flight.

Steve McQueen is one of the most important artists, film-makers and screenwriters working today. Over the last 25 years he has been hugely influential in expanding the way in which artists work with film. He has also authored some of the most seminal works of moving image designed for gallery-based presentation, as well as four films for cinematic release, Hunger (2008), Shame (2010), 12 Years a Slave (2013) and Widows (2018). This publication will bring together all the immersive video and film installations he has made since 2000. It will include large-scale video installations including Caribs' Leap/Western Deep (2002), alongside more recent films such as Ashes (2002-15), as well as the premiering new work. For those new to McQueen the book will include a brief but informative overview of his career to date, in the form of an interview between the artist and renowned critic Okwei Enwezor, together with text focusing on new works and his current practice in art and filmmaking, which will provide a unique and personal review of his output. Further essays will focus more deeply and directly on McQueen's artworks in relation to film, black cinema, queer cinema and the sociopolitical context of black British issues and within black diaspora, providing new insight and critical assessment of his work. The publication will also feature his forthcoming Year 3 project to be held at Tate Britain in late 2019 as well as a further new work yet to be announced.
