HATJE CANTZ

Erwin Wurm: One Minute Sculptures 1996–2017

Edited with text by Christa Steinle. Text by Peter Weibel, Simon Baker, Markus Gabriel.

"Twilight" (2015) is reproduced from 'Erwin Wurm: One Minute Sculptures 1996–2017.'

The iconic One Minute Sculptures of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm (born 1954) invite visitors to realize temporary sculptures by following the artist’s instructions and using objects at hand—levitating, holding your breath and thinking of Spinoza, throwing yourself away, or being a terrorist—for one minute. For a brief moment, long enough to lift the banality, the absurdity of this encounter between individual and object is raised to a philosophical level. Wurm’s constellations are social sculptures whose astonishing simplicity and stringency make them both alluring and unsettling.

This is the first publication to list all of the One Minute Sculptures that Wurm has realized around the world over a period of more than 20 years. It also features his latest work, created for the Austrian Pavilion at the 2017 Venice Biennale.

'Erwin Wurm: One Minute Sculptures' and the involuntary, inadvertent, unpredictable and idiotic

“In a context in which even shared languages seem to have abrogated their responsibility for communication,” Simon Baker writes in Hatje Cantz’s wonderful new 400 page collection of Erwin Wurm’s One Minute Sculptures, 1996–2017, “meaning itself seems in a terminal process of contraction, and truth has become fugitive, it is precisely at this moment and in these conditions that the involuntary, the inadvertent, the unpredictable, and even the idiotic come into their own. Rather than engaging directly with a disputed and disputable account of a subject that refuses to settle down, Wurm’s work invites us into its monumental trajectory simply by offering us safe passage from A to B.” Featured image is “The idiot II” (2003). continue to blog
