On February 27th, a swath of artists, publishers, gallerists, and collectors joined German magazine Weltkunst at the Berlin home of Galerie Judin owner Juerg Judin to celebrate the launch of a new book on Adrian Ghenie. Published by Hatje Cantz, the book represents the first major monograph dedicated to Ghenie’s work and features a foreword by Judin as well as a critical essay by Mark Gisbourne. The artist, also represented by Pace and Plan B is often noted as being a founder of the Cluj School of painting. However, Ghenie was quick to deny the existence of any such school in the talk with Weltkunst publisher Christoph Amend around which the evening was centered.
