NEW – Lobeda

Created in 2010, the book of the ‘Lobeda’ series of drawings has long been out of print, and has now been republished in an expanded form.

NEW - Jena Düsseldorf

This book appeared as a supplement to the ‘Lobeda’ book. In it, Sabine Moritz continues her journey of memory to Jena and, finally, Düsseldorf in increasingly colourful works. The many reproductions are placed in their biographical and artistic context by an interview between Sabine Moritz and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Journal Entries

Journal Entries is a richly illustrated paperback book showcasing the complete series of 37 artworks in a new collection by Sabine Moritz, produced during the months from March to June 2020 when the world was experiencing unprecedented upheaval.

Deeply Unaware

This catalogue, containing all the artist’s abstract works since 2015, was published for the 2019 exhibition at the Galerie Marian Goodman, Paris. The text by Robert Fleck explores not just the works exhibited on that occasion but also the overarching group of works.

Neuland

This publication documents the 2017 exhibition of the same name (meaning ‘new land’) at the Kunsthalle, Bremenhaven, with several installation photos and reproductions of works. The opening speech by Steffen Haug, and a foreword by Kai Kähler, were also printed.

Storm / Dawn

This two-part catalogue was produced for the ‘Dawn’ exhibition at the Marian Goodman Gallery, Paris, in 2016. The first part depicts works from the ‘Hütten’ series, which can be viewed in parallel with the new canvases and works on paper in the second volume. The images are supplemented by an introduction by Etel Adnan and a conversation between Adnan, Sabine Moritz and Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Erinnerungen /Memoirs

This art book appeared in 2016 to coincide with the Sabine Moritz exhibition ‘Harvest’ at the Pilar Corrias Gallery, London. It shows the works in the exhibition, which mostly have their origins in photographs by Robert Capa, and counterpoints them with a poem by Alexander Kuschner.

Flowers, masks, skulls

The stimulus for the cycle of pictures in this exhibition was a still life by Georges Braque. Exhibited for the first time, the still lifes on canvas and paper are shown in the catalogue in combination with earlier drawings of flowers, which are accompanied by a text by Erika Kolitsch.

Sea King

Sea King was published in conjunction with the book launch of German artist Sabine Moritz’s Helicopter at Serpentine Galleries and as a catalogue to a companion exhibition of the Sea King series. Originally derived from a simple black and white sketch, reproduced and painted over, the series comprises 41 individual works focussing on the global presence of the Sea King anti-submarine warfare helicopter, giving the series its name.

Schiffe und Wasser

This publication appeared in connection with the ‘Ships and Water’ exhibition at the Felix Ringel Galerie, Düsseldorf, in 2015. In addition to reproductions of the works exhibited, the book contains the poem ‘I confess to the flowing waters’ by Helga M. Novak and an article by Friedemann Sittig.
