Günther Uecker is one of the most significant artists of the late twentieth century. With his radical change from painted panels to nailed objects in the 1950s, Uecker found the appropriate medium for his artistic intentions, which quickly became his trademark. The "vulnerability of people through people" led him in the 1980s to create effective visual works and installations that touched upon the existential aspects of life. This comprehensive monograph presents choice works from public and private collections around the world as well as pieces from the artist's private collection-some of which have never been exhibited publicly-including early drawings, light media, permutations, nailed objects, Structured Fields, kinetics, Black Room-White Room, Sand Spirals, On the Silence of Writing, Black Mesa, Ash Pictures, tree objects, Wounds-Connections, cloth objects, Letter to Beijing, and brand-new works.
