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.

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.
