arnoldsche Art Publishers Program Spring/Summer 2022
On the following pages you will find, as usual, information on our prospective new releases for spring 2022 featuring many exciting and extraordinary topics. This time our program takes the title of the publication Craft is Cactus (pp. 6–7) as its theme, which, with its ironic undertone, points to the variety, creativity, uniqueness, necessity, beauty, and freedom that art has to offer.
We wish you all the best, and above all good health, for 2022!

“Art can find expression in any form when it is shaped from the creative primal ground. Drawing a distinction between ‘applied art’ and ‘fine art’ is an outmoded concept dating from a compartmentalized era. […] In fact there is only one art, which is always fine, whether it is presented as a utilitarian object or a picture surface.”
This guiding principle defining what art is, as already formulated in the 1950s by Hanns Hoffmann-Lederer, member of the Bauhaus, designer, and teacher of design, symbolically informs our publishing program.

In 2020 Denmark and Germany celebrated a Year of Cultural Friendship—to commemorate the centennial of the establishment of the official border between the two neighboring countries, which, after many years of, at times, violent conflict between them, has existed since 1920. This is also the occasion for publishing our newest title on the buildings realized in Germany by the celebrated Danish designer Arne Jacobsen and his compatriot Otto Weitling.

Art has always been the stage and means of a lively internationalism, as illustrated here in our new autumn releases: In Tikimania, the “Young Wild One” Bernd Zimmer embarks on a search for traces in the South Seas to discover new colors and motifs. The Norwegian artist Thorvald Hellesen finds international recognition in the 1920s Parisian avant-garde circles of Picasso, Léger, and Brâncuși. While in exile in New York, Piet Mondrian encounters the American Charmion von Wiegand and sets off with her on an intense artistic collaboration. All are pioneering examples of real-life internationalism and a prolific pluralism in art.
