Paul Thek in Process evolved from the discovery of an unrealized publication project by the American artist Paul Thek (1933–1988), which had been discussed while he was installing his first space-filling environment, Pyramid/A Work in Progress in 1971, and which was to have been released for documenta 5.For this project, around 800 images were taken capturing the progress of the installation, as well as the final form of this pivotal work of 1970s installation art, Pyramid/A Work in Progress.This book contains not only a large number of unpublished images, but also evaluates the complex organizational task of the installation's conception and eventual realization. It offers an exhibition history seen through the backdoor, with particular attention paid to the status of the ephemeral objects that remain as contingent representatives of the lost work.The selected and reproduced source material is understood as curated in terms of its re-incorporation of what has been left out of art and exhibition history.Consequently, the book takes a documentary and fragmentary approach, and reproduces numerous contact sheets and a large selection of the photographic images, all the remaining correspondence between the artist and the institution, the exhibition and work-related ephemera, as well as the press coverage of the show.

From 31 January Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is showing letters, sculptures and documentation of environments by the American artist Paul Thek (New York 1933-1988). The exhibition is an intimate presentation focussing on the museum's collection of letters that Thek wrote to fellow artist Franz Deckwitz. Paul Thek's works range from drawings, paintings and sculptures in wax and bronze to large-scale installations. He created lumps of meat from wax, which he suspended on cables, and he painted on newspapers. He was inspired by religion, literature, theatre and everyday life. His multifaceted oeuvre occupies a unique place within the art of the 1960s and 1970s. At the heart of the exhibition are Thek's letters to his friend and fellow artist Franz Deckwitz (Schermerhorn, 1934 - Amsterdam, 1994) written between 1962 and 1988, which the museum recently acquired from Deckwitz's estate. They are shown alongside nineteen works by Thek acquired by the museum from Deckwitz's estate some twenty years ago. The letters provide an insight into Thek's life, his artistic development and his collaboration with Deckwitz. Exhibition: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands (31.01.-31.05.2015).

This dissertation examines the work of the American artist Paul Thek (1933-1988), an important but nearly forgotten figure of the 1960s art world. Framed by the concept of 'untimeliness', it addresses Thek's disappearance from the dominant narratives of postwar modernism, examining his absence in light of an early and anachronistic commitment to sculptural figuration (or "disfiguration"), as well as the critical re-appraisal of his work after his death from AIDS-related complications. The dissertation brings Thek's repulsive, disfiguring sculptures of meat of the 1960s, his pioneering installation art of the 1970s and 1980s, and the painterly practice he maintained throughout his career into dialogue with close readings of the voluminous body of writing contained in nearly one hundred of the artist's extant notebooks. Thek's oeuvre becomes a prism through which to re-assess the formation of art history itself while raising important questions of phenomenology, technology, and materiality in post-1960s aesthetic practice in America and Europe vis-à-vis issues of national belonging, religiosity, queer sexuality, and the body.

Vitrines and glass cabinets are familiar apparatuses that have in large part defined modern modes of display and visibility, both within and beyond the museum. They separate objects from their contexts, group them with other objects, both similar and dissimilar, and often serve to reinforce their intrinsic or aesthetic values. The vitrine has much in common with the picture frame, the plinth and the gallery, but it has not yet received the kind of detailed art historical and theoretical discussion that has been brought to these other modes of formal display. The twelve contributions to this volume examine some of the points of origin of the vitrine and the various relations it brokers with sculpture, first in the Wunderkammer and cabinet of curiosities and then in dialog with the development of glazed architecture beginning with Paxton's Crystal Palace (1851). The collection offers close discussions of the role of the vitrine and shop window in the rise of commodity culture and their apposition with Constructivist design in the work of Frederick Kiesler; as well as original readings of the use of vitrines in Surrealism and Fluxus, and in work by Joseph Beuys, Paul Thek, Claes Oldenburg and his collaborators, Jeff Koons, Mike Kelley, Dan Graham, Vito Acconci, Damien Hirst and Josephine Meckseper, among others. Sculpture and the Vitrine also raises key questions about the nature and implications of vitrinous space, including its fronts onto desire and the spectacle; transparency and legibility; and onto ideas and practices associated with the archive: collecting, preserving and ordering.
