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.
