Publisher Note

'Thin skinned audiences' shows new works by Cologne-based artist René Kemp, a series of gouaches appropriating and morphing the original logo of the 1960s record label 'International Artists' and a series of sculptures attaching cut-out adhesive stickers of goggling eyes on used drumskins. The book juxtaposes the works with quotes from collected various artists' interviews (Gillick, Hammons, Kelley, Oehlen, Pettibon et al.) into a self-reflecting, critical narrative on today's climate of discourse in contemporary art.

René Kemp, born 1982, lives and works in Cologne.
