1st edition, 2015
Text English and German
136 pages, 53 color illustrations
22 x 33 cm
In cooperation with Kunsthalle Zürich
German-born artist Thomas Müllenbach plays with our everyday perception of the normal and well-known and undermines our collective ideas of sense, value, and purpose of the visible world. To this end, the now Zürich-based artist explores the discipline of art history and puts the possibilities and limits of painting up for discussion.
This lavishly illustrated new monograph features a range of Thomas Müllenbach’s paintings and drawings. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich, it focuses on Müllenbach’s more recent works, many of which he created especially for this show. Essays by Elke Bippus and Juri Steiner and a conversation between curator Beatrix Ruf and Thomas Müllenbach complement the illustrations.
