Hardcover, 400 pages, 8.5 x 1.41 x 9.81 inches, 2016
From 1979 to 2012, Swiss artists Peter Fischli and David Weiss created a remarkable body of photographs, films, sculptures, and multimedia installations, offering a sustained and deceptively casual meditation on how we perceive everyday life. Published to accompany the exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, this catalogue features an in-depth retrospective of their collaboration, augmented by hundreds of archival images, notes on process, and interview excerpts culled from their archives. A series of probing essays on the artists’ practice and thematic concerns rounds out this definitive account of Fischli and Weiss’s vital contribution to contemporary art.
