Contemporary Art in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (Paperback)

Phoebe Adler


Contemporary Art in Germany, Austria and Switzerland is a unique exploration into the contemporary art from these three countries; looking at those at the cutting edge of the region's artistic output, its history and its international relevance, through a select number of artist profiles, specially commissioned essays and reprints on the subject. The sixth title in the acclaimed ARTWORLD, series this edition features the work of artists including Isa Genzken, Frank Madler, Urs Fischer, Roman Signer, Pipilotti Rist, Erwin Wurm, Carsten Holler and John Bock amongst others. These artists have been chosen with the help of the series' advisors - Rut Blees Luxemburg, Neil Gall and John Slyce - on the basis of their standing careers and predicted longevity. From sculpture to video art, to the latest practices in a range of media, the works featured have been organised throughout the book in preference of medium and style, in keeping with the previous books in the series such that they transcend geographical and regional preconceptions.A specially commissioned introducion is followed by an appendix of essays and reprints by writers, academics and practitioners working in the field, contextualising the work over the preceding pages and discussing the various arguments that arise from the art being produced in this region. Fully illustrated and consistent with the previous ARTWORLD titles, Contemporary Art in Germany, Austria and Switzerland is an essential introduction to these three countries and their contemporary art scenes. The book follows on from the recent Contemporary Art in the United Kingdom and Contemporary Art in North America, now all available in paperback and at a reduced price.
