Artist: BRUS, GÜNTER
Title: Bodyanalysis: Actions 1964-1970
Format: DVD/Book
Label: Edition Krothenhayn
Country: Germany
Price: $108.00
100 page book and all-region DVD. "A core member of the artist collective around Hermann Nitsch, Otto Mühl and Rudolf Schwarzkogler -- instigators of Viennese Actionism -- it was during the early 1960s that Viennese painter, performance artist, graphic artist and writer Günter Brus staged his first actions in Vienna. Due to the radical nature of his works, Brus soon found himself at odds with the Austrian authorities. Sentenced to six months of close arrest, in 1970 Brus absconded to Berlin. During the subsequent years, his works were shown by a range of internationally-renowned museums and galleries -- nowadays, Brus ranks among Austrias most eminent contemporary artists. The DVD introduces the films Körperanalysen ("Body Analysis"), an overview of Actionism movies from 1964-1970 (by, amongst others, Kurt Kren, Otto Mühl, Ernst Schmid Jr.), compiled and presented in a documentary format by Peter Kasperak, as well as Anita Natmessnigs documentary Schrecklich Verletzlich ("Awfully Hurt"). In addition, the DVD features many slide shows of Actionism photography by Ludwig Hoffenreich, amongst others. Hand-numbered edition of 1,000 copies. The packaging consists of a slip lid box with banderole, containing an 100-page book with photos and texts by Peter Weibel and Theo Altenberg." - Edition Krothenhayn.

Artist: DIE TODLICHE DORIS
Title: Gehörlose Musik
Format: DVD
Label: Edition Krothenhayn
Country: Germany
Price: $62.00
"During the years 1980-87, German trio Die Tödliche Doris was absolutely legendary in the Berlin underground music and art scene. Embodying the pure, obscure spirit of "neue deutsche welle," their releases and live shows revealed a raw post-punk sensibility with performance art. Die Todliche Doris are still widely considered one of the most radical, intelligent and influential German avantgarde bands of the last two decades. Now this DVD brings the music of the legendary, long unavailable LP Gehörlose Musik from 1981 back to life -- in the guise of gestures, signs, interaction and movement. Each DVD is hand-numbered and available only in a limited edition of 1,000 -- once gone, will be gone forever. In November 1998, Wolfgang Müller, founder of Die Tödliche Doris, decided to re-release the bands sought-after and long unavailable first vinyl LP. However, not as sound, but as a gesture: sign language interpreters Dina Tabbert and Andrea Schulz translated and reshaped the lyrics and music of the album using nothing but signs and gestures. The result of this transmutation is a "soundless" music, expressed entirely within and through the body. Many hearing-impaired people -- and an equal amount of those who could hear just fine -- made their way to the Prater at the Berliner Volksbühne to witness this process as part of a series of events called Gehörlose Musik (music for the deaf or "soundless music"), initiated by "Freunde guter Musik" (friends of good music). And the result is no dance, no performance, no music -- it constitutes a new form of art defying conventional definition. The DVD can be played in sign language option, or music option and also contains an interview with Wolfgang Müller as well as a 24-page booklet with writing and photographs. Comes encased in a slip-lid box with banderole. Format: DVD 5; Language: German; Subtitle: German/English; Format: NTSC, 4:3, Region: 0; Time: ca. 60 min. Booklet: 48 pages, German/English." - Edition Krothenhayn. 2006 release.

Artist: KIPPENBERGER, MARTIN
Title: Musik / 1979-1995
Format: CD/Book Box Set
Label: Edition Krothenhayn
Country: Germany
Price: $79.00
"Kippenberger unplugged! Martin Kippenberger skipped out on this world after just 44 years - in 1997, the art worlds flamboyant enfant terrible, one of Germanys most famous painters best known for his biting provocations and prolific output, died of the consequences of his equally prolific alcohol consumption. In 1978, Kippenberger moved to Berlin, launched Kippenbergers Büro (together with his future gallerist Gisela Capitain) and became the managing director of Kreuzbergs seminal venue SO36 where he proceeded to confuse the local punks with acts like Red Krayola, Scritti Politti, Kleenex or Kevin Coyne. His own band Luxus (featuring Christine Hahn of Malaria!, among others) released a limited edition single in 1979, available in homeopathic quantities. In subsequent years, he cranked out a steady stream of further singles, with fellow painter Albert Oehlen, among others. Kippenbergers not-so-secret love and passion, however, was swing music - expansive, and possibly pompous, big band jazz - and traces of this have found their way onto a Golden Kot Quartett release, which lists Kippenberger as its drummer. "Yuppi Du," on the other hand, makes the most of his Dadaist humor, while several versions of "Ja, Ja, Ja, Nee, Nee, Nee" pay tongue-in-cheek homage to Joseph Beuys. Now, give or take three decades later, Edition Kröthenhayn releases the surviving works of Kippenberger and his friends on CD and vinyl. Expect 60 minutes of music: jazz, noise and obscure sound experiments squeezed into a limited, hand-numbered (1,000 copies) CD box containing a 72-page book. Edition is replete with a slip lid box and banderole and is a prime example of luxurious, high-quality bookbinding. In addition, essays and writing by Max Dax (Spex), Wolfgang Müller (Die Tödliche Doris) and Frieder Butzmann are accompanied by many previously unpublished - and unseen - photographs." - Edition Krothenhayn.

Format: DVD/CD
Label: Edition Krothenhayn
Country: Germany
Price: $108.00
"Super deluxe DVD & CD set. The Action art of Hermann Nitsch from past to present Actions, 1962-2003 (1 DVD; this DVD is in European PAL format only and not compatible with some/many DVD players in the US) plus a CD with the recordings from the 2005 Burgtheater performance. Hand-numbered edition of 1000 copies. The packaging consists of a slip lid box with banderole, containing an 80-page book with photos and text. Disputed and celebrated: Hermann Nitsch, Actionist and painter, composer and stage designer. He is one of the most renowned Austrian artists of today and nevertheless still divides the art world as before. Nitsch belongs beside Günter Brus, Otto Mühl and Rudolf Schwarzkogler as one of the most important main actors of Viennese Actionism. At the beginning of the 60s he carried out his first "Actions" in Vienna, which involved several trials and three terms of imprisonment. His main work, "Orgy Mystery Theatre," the bloody, sacrilegious meat-play inspired by Greek mythology, Antonin Artaud and Sigmund Freud, was the defining work of his career, and has established and influenced Actionist performance representations in contemporary art ever since. On this DVD there is a 4-hour overview of all of Nitschs "Actions" from 1962-2003, as well as an interview from 2005. The 80-page book (German/English) which includes text by Florian Schreiner and numerous photos, explains the theoretical basis of Nitschs work. On the CD are recordings of the 122nd "Action" at the Burgtheater of Vienna in November of 2005. Package: box/book, 80 pages/DVD/CD; Edition: Limited to 1000 copies, hand-numbered; Content: main feature + interview; Running-time: approx. 4 hours; Audio-Language: German; Subtitles: German/English/French; Format: PAL, 4:3, color; Audio-Format: Stereo (MP2/AC3); Region: 0 (all regions)." - Edition Krothenhayn. 2006 release.
