About this exhibition catalogue

Oath Against Minimalism documents the multifaceted work of the up-and-coming artist Sung Tieu, whose sculptural and sound installations engender uncanny and immersive spatial situations. Lavishly illustrated and containing four essays by international art historians and curators, as well as an interview with the artist, this wide-ranging publication provides a comprehensive insight into Tieus practice; placing her work against the backdrop of bureaucratic power structures, global capitalism, the psychological effects of sound, and the legacies of the Cold War. This monograph is published on the occasion of Tieu´s first institutional exhibitions: "Sung Tieu. Zugzwang" (2020) at Haus der Kunst in Munich and "In Cold Print" (2020) at Nottingham Contemporary.

The volume with contributions by Pamela Nguyen Corey, Kathleen Ditzig, Damian Lentini (Ed.) and Cédric Fauq (Ed.) will be published by Spector Books in mid-July, 2020.
