Collecting Books

A conceptual snapshot of the arts in book form.

My first selection of Austrian art books and artists’ books produced over the last two years. Who publishes art books and artists’ books today and what content do they articulate? This collection contains a synopsis of statements by the actors, their descriptions of themselves, and a brief introduction to each of the curated books. Participants: Museums, firms, private foundations, small publishers, and individual artists.

Welche Fertigen brauchen Bildhauer heute wirklich? Und nicht zuletzt, wie könnte die Bildhauerei-Abteilung einer Kunstuniversität heute ihr Feld auf anregende und zukunftsweisende Art definieren?
