What new paths have sculptors opened up since the end of World War II? Based on late works by Constantin Brancusi and Alberto Giacometti, this unique comprehensive volume illustrates the exciting and multifaceted developments in this dynamic art form.
The book demonstrates how the classic notion of form and sculpture was set in motion, became more abstract, was brought closer to the ordinary everyday object, dissolved spatial or conceptual boundaries, or even reconstituted itself by returning to figurative traditions. The long and top-class list of the artists being presented ranges from Pablo Picasso, Henry Moore, and Jean Tinguely to Franz West, Damien Hirst, and Monika Sosnowska. On the basis of selected works from the Kunstmuseum Basel and outstanding loans from international museums and private collections, the tour opens up a dense, extremely rich world of contrasts.
