Erwin Wurm Photographs is being published to accompany the first retrospective (4 March - 7 June 2020) organized by the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) of this world-renowned Austrian artist’s photographic work.
The book explores Wurm’s eclectic practice from this new angle. In addition to bringing together some 600 photographs from the late 1980s to the present, this exhaustive compilation includes original contact sheets and prints from the artist’s personal archive that have never been seen before. It examines the artistic process through which Wurm created many of his major works and series, from his “Dust Sculptures” and “Fabio Getting Dressed” to his influential “One-Minute Sculptures,” and also features his recent large-format Polaroid photographs.
