The Sense of Movement: When Artists Travel
Edited by András Szántó. Text by Thomas Girst, Marc Spiegler, Ursula Ströbele, Lawrence Weschler.
BWM Art Journey is a new global art initiative by Art Basel and BMW. Its goal is to support young international artists. As a “mobile studio,” the award enables the selected artists to set out on a creative research journey to the place of their choice—in order to work there, establish contacts and produce new works. While subsequent volumes will be devoted to each of the individual winners of the BWM Art Journey, the first publication invites readers to explore the history of the artist on his or her journeys. Artists opened up new markets abroad as early as the Renaissance, and this volume includes works by Max Beckmann, Joseph Beuys, Albert Bierstadt, Julius von Bismarck, Sophie Calle, Daniel Dencik, Paul Gauguin, Olafur Eliasson, Robert Frank, Tehching Hsieh, Leandro Katz, Richard Long, Paul Klee, August Macke, Anna Mendieta, Maria Sibylla Merian, Eduard Spelterini and Qiu Zhije.
