Text by Marc-Olivier Wahler, Jacqueline Burckhardt, Giovanni Carmine, Philip Ursprung, Diedrich Diederichsen, Gianni Jetzer, Rein Wolfs.
This publication presents an overview of the work of the Swiss artist duo Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann (L/B), who have been collaborating since 1993 and have regularly exhibited in biennials, museums and art venues around the world. Their work can be described as riding on the edge of art, architecture and design. Designed by the Zurich-based design firm Norm, this volume divides L/B's work into seven thematic groups by chapter: Mobile (containing movable objects, among them the one-room hotel "Everland"), Comfort (inflatable objects), Perfect (modular objects), Surface (sharp-edged paintings), Flat (wall paintings), Space (stage objects) and Field (interventions in the real world). Each thematic chapter is introduced by a noted writer; they include, in order, Marc-Olivier Wahler, Philip Ursprung, Giovanni Carmine, Jacqueline Burckhardt, Diedrich Diederichsen, Gianni Jetzer and Rein Wolfs.
