Sixty Pictures in Four Decades

Published by Jovis.
Edited by Eckhard Hollman, Juergen Krieger. Interview by Manfred Engeser.

Günther Uecker (born 1930) is a cofounder of the Zero group, with Otto Piene and Heinz Mack. Over the past 40 years, alongside his famed “nail reliefs,” he has also made a series of autobiographical “written” paintings, which this new volume documents. Uecker describes these works as being “made with hands and feet out of almost dance-like actions.”

Gunther Uecker: Twenty Chapters

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Edited by Alexander Tolnay. Essays by Wulf Herzogenrath, Dieter Honisch, Britta Schmitz, Stephan von Wiese and Kazuhiro Yamamoto.

With a radical change from painted panels to nailed objects in the 1950s, Gunther Uecker found the medium for his artistic intentions. It quickly became his trademark and made him one of the most significant artists of the era. His sense of the "vulnerability of people through people" eventually led him, in the 1980s, to create visual works and installations that touched upon ever darker and deeper existential questions. This comprehensive monograph, Twenty Chapters, presents choice works from throughout his career, from public and private collections around the world--early drawings, light media, permutations, nailed objects and kinetic work--as well as pieces from his private collection, some of which have never been exhibited.
