This Is the House that Jack Built

Edited by Maja Hoffman. Text by Rirkrit Tiravanija. Photographs by François Halard.

This book offers insight into the private contemporary art and design collection of Swiss art collector and philanthropist Maja Hoffmann, portrayed by photographer François Halard and art director Beda Achermann. To complete the volume, Rirkrit Tiravanija has dispersed the British nursery rhyme "This is the House that Jack Built," using a custom-designed font, among the photos.

Tom Delavan

“This Is The House That Jack Built” plays down Hoffmann’s actual houses while (like the nursery rhyme) conveying the centrality of the idea of home, yet one is struck by the breathtakingly original interiors furnished with the best examples of 20th-century design. Hoffmann’s eye for architecture and furniture is as discerning as it is for paintings, and she manages to create spaces where the art, despite its importance, doesn’t overshadow the life of a room.
