Rising features works of 100 young artists on the fringe of the established art scene.

They are young, inspiring and challenging. They are surprising and convincing. And they are unmistakable. For all that, the 100 young artist personalities showcased in Daab’s new book project, Rising, do have something in common: their work is already firing great hopes that they’ll occupy commanding positions in the art scene.

We’ll admit from the start this is of course a subjective choice. But the question remains: can any small selection from the diverse young art world be objective? Of course not! So Rising’s editorial board quite deliberately embraced the difficulty in making its choices. And a good job too, because the contestable process resulted in an unusual book.

Editor Olaf Salié and the selection board were all intimately familiar with a vast spectrum of contemporary art. The editorial and organisational coordination was managed by experienced Cologne editor Christiane Blass. All contributors offered their knowledge and judgement skills to the project.

The result is a compendium of personalities and positions, across the spectrum of artistic disciplines – all of which one should literally keep an eye on. All of these young national and international artists have a connection with Germany. Their passion, will to make and the relevant work they have created merits attention and critical commentary.

There are very young artists among them, some of whom have not yet graduated from their academies and others who are already achieving success in the art world. The team who worked on this book felt this range was important in order to relate different positions to each other, while in the process surveying the current art scene as revealingly as possible. This publication is a watchlist that's essential for art lovers, collectors, gallery owners and curators.
