Smart Artist is not only an artist’s book, but can also be understood as a handbook, which not only conveys the most diverse tasks of Böhmler as a media craftsman in pictures, but also – updated to the latest state of media achievment by QR code – mediates them in film and sound by simple scanning using a tablet or smartphone app.

The Collection

Dec 1, 2017 – April 2, 2018

Press release: “Artists’ books tell stories, are manifestos, archives or political proclamations. They break with traditional forms of design, open up new spaces, are programmatic, narrative, playful or even abysmal. Discovered as an open and versatile medium through conceptual art and the Fluxus movement, the artist’s books have established themselves as an independent art genre since the 1960s.
With the exhibition “Künstlerbücher. Die Sammlung”, the Hamburger Kunsthalle presents for the first time a selection of the best-known publications from its collection of around 1,700 exhibits. […] Dieter Roth, the most important and most stubborn as well as uncompromising protagonist of the artist’s book, and the Hamburg artist Claus Böhmler, who died last year, each have their own rooms dedicated to them.”
