Cosima von Bonin

Source Book 9

From oversized stuffed animals to sewn paintings, from pastiches of minimalist sculptures to recreations of shop display systems, Cosima von Bonin’s work blends formalism and Pop, oscillating between seriousness and fun, weighed down with melancholy or fizzing with critical wit.

This book features new texts by her long-standing collaborator Dirk von Lowtzow and from the cult writer Mark von Schlegell, revealing the quirky world of references that inform von Bonin’s unusual practice.

Accompanying an exhibition that takes sloth as one of its central themes, the book also reproduces an existing array of texts on laziness and sloth that were first published by Brooklyn-based Cabinet magazine in 2008.

The penultimate in Witte de With’s Source Book series, this publication continues to explore the sources that artists employ in their work, while also acting as a source for further research by others.
