Published by Henry Art Gallery. Texts by Luis Croquer, Clément Dirié, Lucia Schreyer, Franz Erhard Walther, Gregory Williams. Interview by Elena Filipovic.
A contemporary of Donald Judd and Richard Serra, the highly influential German artist Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) has been investigating the spatial and sensorial and dimensions of forms for over six decades. Walther’s sculptural practice is rooted in performance and collaborative situations, challenging traditional notions of sculptural process and product. Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major US show since he was included in the 1969 Spaces exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, Franz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws features new scholarship by Luis Croquer, Clément Dirié, Lucia Schreyer and Gregory Williams, an interview and a newly translated text by the artist. Nearly 100 color photographs, including archival images and images of the exhibition installation, document drawings, photographs and sculptures produced between 1957 and the present.

This publication retraces the acclaimed German artist Franz Erhard Walther’s (born 1939) multipart sculpture First Work Set, begun in 1963 and completed in 1969. The piece’s 58 individual fabric elements are activated by visitors in a series of quotidian actions such as folding, dropping and measuring.

It seems only appropriate that this new publication from Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) should take the form of an inviting, brightly colored pop-up book: since the 1960s, the pioneering German artist has been celebrated for the performative and inclusive nature of his sculpture.
Published by Hatje Cantz. Text by Luisa Fink, et al.
Well known for his interactive fabric-based sculptures (exhibited at Dia: Beacon in 2012), Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) has developed a new conception of sculpture as performative object. Besides sculptural works, this volume presents drawings and photographs that delineate the performance dimensions of the sculptures.
