Coinciding with Neo Rauch's 2014 exhibition at the New York gallery, David Zwirner Books published At the Well. The catalogue features a text by historian and curator Norman Rosenthal, as well as a reprint of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale The Young Giant, which Rosenthal specifically chose to further expand his analysis of the relationship between fairy tales and Rauch's work.

Begleiter in Leipzig and Munich
2010

In 2010, Museum der bildenden Künste, Leipzig and Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich presented Begleiter, a two-venue retrospective of Neo Rauch's work. The exhibition featured 120 predominantly large-scale works from 1993 to 2010. This was the artist's first major museum survey.

Hatje Cantz published the accompanying exhibition catalogue. The two-sided book was designed to reflect the exhibition's two parts and venues, and included contributions by Rauch's long-time colleagues, including fellow artists Michaël Borremans and Luc Tuymans.

para at The Metropolitan Museum of Art
2007

May 22–October 14, 2007

Neo Rauch created 14 new works specifically for the exhibition para at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His solo exhibition was one in a series focused on mid-career artists, following exhibitions featuring Tony Oursler in 2005 and Kara Walker in 2006.

The title para refers to Rauch's consideration of painting's as an extension of dreaming, a parallel world to reality. On this subject, Rauch has said "For me, painting means the continuation of a dream with other means."

NEO RAUCH

Junitag, 2017

Oil on canvas
78 3 /4 × 98 1 /2 inches (200 × 250 cm)

Neo Rauch's (b. 1960) paintings are characterized by their distinctive combination of figurative imagery and surrealist abstraction. His enigmatic compositions employ an eccentric iconography of human characters, animals, and hybrid forms within familiar-looking but imaginary settings. While each work is started without a preconceived idea of the finished result, there is a uniquely recognizable, visual coherence to Rauch's overall oeuvre. Paintings often display palettes of strong, complementary colors, and recurrent subjects include the seamless integration of organic and non-organic elements as well as references to the creative process, music, and manual labor. The artist's treatment of scale is deliberately arbitrary and non-perspectival, and often seems to allude to different temporalities or planes of existence.

The title of the present work translates to "June day." As Rauch notes about the importance of language in his practice, "occasionally a word can trigger a painting. It can happen that a word develops an incredible atmospheric undertow in the direction of a painting that produces itself where my only duty is to assist. Such moments are precious and they bring me even closer to my mother tongue, for it is only here that such experiences can occur."1

Neo Rauch

Text by Christian Viveros-Fauné

This fully illustrated catalogue was published on the occasion of the artist’s fourth solo exhibition at David Zwirner in 2008. The exhibition presented new paintings by Rauch, which feature a colorful cast of characters, ranging from sturdy women workers to dandified men in topcoats. Amongst the works on view was the striking painting Parabel (2008), which depicts a fallen painter with a noose tied from his neck to a blank canvas. Available in hardcover, this catalogue includes a text by art critic Christian Viveros-Fauné.
