Product Description

What at first sight seems to be an ironic and humourous reply to the frequently touted purity in minimalist art represents the very substance of Erik Steinbrecher's work: Minimalist Kitsch signifies a productive contradiction between reduction and immoderation.

The monograph gathers recent works, works on view in the two corresponding solo exhibitions at Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich and at Villa Merkel, Esslingen, as well as a few works from public and semi-public spaces.
Erik Steinbrecher, born in 1963 in Basel, lives and works in Berlin. His work has developed in two main directions: the area of architecture and sculpture and the realm of photography. The artist not only realises more and more projects in public space, but he also takes a passionate interest in images of the mass media

Edited by Andreas Baur and Dorothea Strauss.
