Haim Steinbach - No Rocks Allowed. - Witte de With 1992

This book, a photo album compiled and designed by Steinbach himself, serves as a continuation of the exhibition, while the images and texts that are brought together remain primarily autonomous works by others, both artists and non-artists. Let there be no misunderstanding about this. But, as the expanded title of this book, Ijskoude Douche (No Rocks Allowed.) suggests, something else occurs in Haim Steinbach’s selections and arrangements. Distinct from the majority of conceptual artists, Haim Steinbach wields the linguistic rendering of an (art) work neither to criticize more traditional art concepts nor to subscribe to the cynical acceptance, shared by many contemporary artists, of the corruption of language by the media. Haim Steinbach has been, however, very interested in the ‘ins and outs’ of art, especially those of contemporary art, whose singularity has been surpassed revealing a generic commitment to other worldly manifestations.
Images or works by Bas Jan Ader, Marcel Broodthaers, James Joyce, Joseph Kosuth, Cas Oorthuys, Klaus Rinke, Gerry Schum, Shelly Silver, J.J. Slauerhoff, the Van Toer family, G. Lee Thompson, Lawrence Weiner.
