George Steinmann, artist, musician and researcher, is recognized as an eminent intermediary between art and the sciences in Switzerland. For many years he has been investigating the relation between ecology and aesthetics. Many of Steinmann’s works are created in a lengthy process and often involve other artists and scientists working on trans-disciplinary projects.
Call and Response presents George Steinmann’s thinking and working methods and analyses the development of his oeuvre and his collaboration with other disciplines. The second part of the book features selected works from the past thirty years and discusses them in context of today’s artistic discourse.
