Exhibition catalog for
LastYear in Marienbad
at Kunsthalle Bremen.
For the exhibition Last Year in Marienbad – A Film as Art at Kunsthalle Bremen, we designed the catalog together with Fons Hickmann m23. The 1961 film broke with traditional structures of time, location, and causality like no other film before it. The director, Alain Resnais, played with an artistic language in which the style itself became the content. In doing so, he defined an appreciation of art that has extended into the present day: Nouvelle Vague. The catalogue examines the influence of the film on the fine arts, on Pop culture and fashion, garnering international approaches from the beginning of the twentieth century through to the present. Including works by Vito Acconci, Eugène Atget, Vanessa Beecroft, David Claerbout, Yang Fudong, Giorgio de Chirico, Douglas Gordon, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons, Robert Longo, René Magritte, Gerhard Richter, Cindy Sherman and others.
