Rift Gap Hinge A documents an internationally recognized exhibition that appeared in 2006 and 2007 at the Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder in Vienna, one of Austria’s, and, indeed, Europe’s most eminent venues for contemporary art. Curated by the Austrian artist Heinrich Dunst, Rift Gap Hinge A collected works that explore the difference between the visible and the expressible and trace the illuminating relation between visual art, film, and literature. This catalog features works from artists worldwide, including John Baldessari, Konrad Bayer, Marcel Broodthaers, Rafał Bujnowski, Ernst Caramelle, Clegg & Guttmann, Heinrich Dunst, Rainer Ganahl, Nikolaus Gansterer, Louise Lawler, Ján Mančuška, Christian Marclay, Michael S. Riedel, Ferdinand Schmatz, Peter Tscherkassky, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, and Rémy Zaugg.

Comprising seventy photographs of the artworks and the exhibition, as well as detailed descriptions of the pieces on display and a number of essays that put the works in context, this book creates a lively panorama of American and European contemporary art.
