The second volume of the Stiftung Arp Papers is dedicated to Hans Arp’s artistic production after 1945, finally giving his substantial and but to date little explored late work its due. This publication documents Arp’s late artistic development and demonstrates that while he continued to rethink well-known works from the Dada period, he also conducted joyful new experiments with form, materials, and techniques. Arp reached his zenith with a great many prizes and prestigious exhibitions.
In nine lucid analyses, the multi-faceted oeuvre Arp created both as a visual artist and as a poet after the Second World War is explored through the interdisciplinary lenses of art history, literary criticism, and architecture. By bringing together studies on the genesis of specific works, Arp’s relationship with other artists, and his influence on the architecture of his time, this volume opens up astounding new perspectives. Seen in this new light, the richness of Arp’s late work is striking.

In the early 1930’s, Hans Arp was in close contact with Polish artists. His organic abstraction was also important to artists in Poland in the decades following the Second World War. The catalogue “A-Geometry: Hans Arp and Poland” opens up a new perspective on Arp’s oeuvre and its reception by viewing it through the lens of Polish art from the late 1920’s to today. Over 50 sculptures, reliefs and graphic works by Arp are shown in dialogue with works by selected Polish artists. The catalogue features Arp’s contemporaries Władisław Strzemiński, Henryk Stażewski, and Jan Brzekowski as well as artists who have engaged with Arp’s visual language and theoretical writings since the 1950’s, including Andrzej Pawłowski, Alina Szapocznikow, Jan Berdyszak, Aleksandra Ska and Iwona Demko. The richly illustrated bilingual exhibition catalogue (Polish/English) includes scholarly essays by Paulina Kurc-Maj, Marta Smolińska and Maike Steinkamp.
Hans Arp and the United States
Aufsatzsammlung, Schriftenreihe der Stiftung Arp e.V., Bd. 1
Herausgeber: Maike Steinkamp and Loretta Würtenberger
203 Seiten, zahlreiche Abbildungen
Die Publikation ist als PDF erhältlich.
The book illuminates the wide-ranging aspects of Hans Arp's influence and reception in the United States. Especially after the Second World War Arps work achieved widespread recognition by American museums, galleries and collectors. During the 1950s also a new generation of American artists, like Jackson Pollock, Donald Judd or Ellsworth Kelly engaged intensely with the artist's oeuvre. Surprisingly Arp's influence on post-war American art, his contacts with collectors, patrons and artists have not yet been fully explored. Nor has enough attention been paid to the presence of his art in exhibitions, galleries and on the art market in the US, all of which have informed the reception of his work to this day. The publication explores these so important aspects in the career of Hans Arp.
