Thomas Schütte: HousesThomas Schütte: Houses

Published by Richter & Fey Verlag.
Text by Andrea Bellini, Dieter Schwarz.

Düsseldorf-based artist Thomas Schütte (born 1954) first came to prominence in the 1980s with his drawings, watercolors, stage sets and architectural models. In the 1990s, he produced ceramic figures and monumental sculptures of bronze and steel. Schütte’s first forays into imaginary or utopian architecture were scale models of rooms in which one might live and work: ateliers for artistic activity, and bunkers to which one might retreat. After a gap of 20 years, Schütte returned to the architectural model, producing light pavilions out of wood and studio leftovers, as well as commercial and public buildings. Where his early models exist as potential buildings only, the later models of his One Man Houses series (from 2003 to the present) are designed to be built (as several have been). Houses provides a comprehensive survey of Schütte’s architectural models, from his early experiments through to his current design projects.

Thomas Schütte: Faces and FiguresThomas Schütte: Faces and Figures

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited by Sophie O’Brian. Foreword by Julia Peyton-Jones, Hans Ulrich Obrist. Text by John Berger.

Over the last two decades, alongside his better known sculptural work, German artist Thomas Schütte (born 1954) has created watercolors and drawings of his acquaintances and friends, as well as numerous self-portraits (such as the Mirror Drawings). These drawings are often created in series, as Schütte approaches the same subject over and over, obsessively covering all angles and methodically exhausting the possibilities. Schütte’s drawings directly inform his sculptural portraits, which are created in a similar spirit. With 130 color reproductions, Faces and Figures offers a selective, themed Schütte retrospective, surveying these portraits and other works on paper, as well as ceramic and bronze sculptures--including the impressive “Vater Staat” (Father State), a towering steel figure that despite its scale appears frail and isolate.

Thomas Schütte: FrauenThomas Schütte: Frauen

Published by Richter & Fey Verlag.
Text by Andrea Bellini, Dieter Schwarz.

Düsseldorf-based artist Thomas Schütte (born 1954) is one of the most idiosyncratic of present-day artists, venturing to deploy techniques, genres and themes long thought passé--such as the sculpturally formed female figure--in permanent materials such as bronze, aluminum and steel. Schütte began his Frauen series toward the end of the 1990s and, while his first reclining nudes can be understood within the language of Classicism, his later, monumental figures with sawn-off limbs and various distortions--sometimes with bodies steamrolled flat or in tantalizing poses--resist all attempts at easy categorization. But Schütte’s brutal treatment of the female form is motivated less by a desire to shock than by a concern with the figure as a present-day testing ground for artistic expression, one that is frequently shot through with Schütte’s characteristic morbid humor. Frauen contains almost 200 color reproductions, along with texts by Andrea Bellini and Dieter Schwarz.

Published by Richter Verlag.
Text by Patrizia Dander, Stefanie Manthey.

Since the 1980s, Düsseldorf artist Thomas Schütte (born 1953) has produced architectural models, sculptures of female heads in steel, bronze and aluminum, and a large body of works on paper. This latest monograph examines the latter, executed over the past three years, which use watercolor, ink and graphite to bring humor, ideas and observations into a diaristic form.

Thomas Schütte: Collector's Choice Vol. 2

Published by Dumont Buchverlag.
Essay by Ulrich Loock. Foreword by Friedrich Christian Flick.

Thomas Schtte has frequently cast himself into the role of a maverick--remained remote from the work of his artistic mentor, distanced himself from the statements of each ephemeral Zeitgeist and increasingly contradicted his own positions--and in so doing has become one of the most influential artists of his generation. Shifting from text to image to object to book, his work juxtaposes biographical moments with contemporary events, oscillates between the aspiration to shape the public reception of architecture and monumental sculpture and the conjunctive of model-maker, and projects avant-garde ideas onto traditional forms of art. With meticulous rigor, Ulrich Loock has observed the evolution of Schtte's output over the past 25 years. Underpinning his lucid overview is a series of intensive discussions between the author and artist on the genesis and history of particular works. This well-designed book is the most comprehensive monograph of the artist's work to date, and provides profound insight into Schtte's work through detailed discussions of the pieces.

Thomas SchütteThomas Schütte

Published by Richter Verlag.
Essays by Jan Avgikos, Lynne Cooke, Alexander Kluge, Gertrud Sandqvist, Susan Steward,

Thomas Schütte's works are almost always proposals, and are consequently almost always in the form of models. At the core of this system of presentation lies hypothesis and speculation, moralism and romanticism, melancholy and black humor. Through early architectural installations and small-scale modeled figures and proposals for monuments, through extensive series of watercolors, banners, flags and photographs, Schutte takes a skeptical look at the world. This new monograph explores in detail the vast scope and extraordinary inventiveness of Schutte's work by documenting his tripartite exhibition at the Dia Center for the Arts, New York. "Scenewright" focuses on issues relating to sceneography and theater; "Gloria in Memoria" explores memorials, monuments and antiheroes; and "In Media Res" presents recent ceramics and a related series of monumental steel sculptures.

Thomas Schütte

Published by Dia Art Foundation.
Essays by Lynne Cooke, Michael Govan, Getrud Sandqvist, Susan Stewart.

Fundamentally, my works are almost always in the nature of a proposal, Thomas Schütte contends, while conceding that "nonetheless, mostly they exist in the form of models." Schütte's notion of models is, consequently, encompassing and complex: at its core lies hypothesis and speculation. This new monograph explores in detail the vast scope of work by this renowned mid-career German artist by documenting a tripartite, eighteen-month exhibition at the Dia Center for the Arts which in effect constitutes a retrospective overview of the artist's oeuvre. Devised in three segments with distinct points of reference, this unusually extended presentation revealed the extraordinary inventiveness and diversity of Schütte's production. Scenewright, the first installment, from September 1998 through January 1999, focuses on issues relating to scenography and theater. Gloria in Memoria, from February through June 1999, explores memorials, monuments and antiheroes, and includes works ranging from installations and sculpture to drawing. The third and final phase, In Medias Res, from September 1999 through June 2000, concentrated on recent ceramics, shown together with a new series of related monumental steel sculptures. The accompanying catalogue follows the same format as the exhibition, with essays by Dia curator and renowned art scholar Lynne Cooke as well as acclaimed poet and critic Susan Stewart.
