About this title
Since the 1980s, Thomas Schütte has been forging a highly individual, enigmatic, and stunningly diverse œuvre, one that stretches beyond the reach of all trends and fashions. This volume presents a retrospective on his career to this point, offering fascinating insight into nearly thirty years of artistic development.
Schütte has played a substantial role in the revival of figural work in contemporary art, and, in particular, has worked to develop sculpture and statuary art as an anti-sculptor.” This lavishly illustrated volume reveals the multi-layered subjects and diverse artistic processes employed in his work, which encompasses bronze, wood, ceramic, and steel, as well as more unusual materials like aluminum and Fimo modeling clay. From massive, bulky women and gnome-like midgets to monumental warriors or representations of thought-patterns, all the artworks reproduced here testify to the singular genius of Thomas Schütte. Many of his sculptures are to be found in American museums, like the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, or the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
Marc Gundel is director of the Städtische Museen Heilbronn. Rita E. Täuber is an independent author, lecturer, and curator.
