Synopsis: Organized around the themes of models, monuments, and memorials-key subjects in Schutte's art-this volume offers a comprehensive selection of work from the late 1970s to today by an artist considered a key figure of his generation. Schutte's installations, sculptures, prints, drawings, and watercolours often take contradictory forms, and his art may seem to depict alien worlds. Yet his focus is everyday life, whose basic constituents-natural, cultural, political-he revises, using a broad range of materials and colours, while asking questions about the place of art in society. Schutte has long engaged with many of the traditional genres of sculpture-the reclining female figure and the commemorative portrait bust, for example-yet the results are utterly unconventional. A deeply contrarian spirit informs his approach, resulting in a transformation of standard and formulaic modes into singular statements that reflect on history, politics, social space, and collective experience. Together the works in this book comprise an impressive career marked by constant change and innovation.

Review: Thomas Schutte is a catalogue of works by this contemporary German artist. Schutte studied under Gerhard Richter, Benjamim Buchloh, and Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Dusseldorf Academy in the 1970s. He comes from this strong conceptual background but as his career matured the emotional content of his work evolved and became much more potent. Schutte's work is incredibly eclectic: Ceramic figures, architectural models, drawings, outdoor sculptures, photographs and installations. A recent work, Big Spirits (1996), is a collection of larger-than-life size aluminium figures that seem to be morphing before one's eyes. They are at once ghost, human and machine. Also incredibly riveting are The Innocents (1994), a series of photographs of the heads of handmade figurines, and United Enemies, A Play in Ten Scenes (1993)--offset lithographs, also of figurines wrapped in Schutte's clothes. His watercolours are beautiful, ranging from drawings of fruit to portraits of women. Whatever the project, Schutte is tapped in to a particular humanity.

Included in the book are essays by Julian Haynes, Angela Vettese, an interview with James Lingwood and an essay by the Roman philosopher Seneca, chosen by the artist. There is also a story by Schutte, printed in English for the first time. --Jennifer Cohen
