One of Poland’s foremost contemporary artists, Pawel Althamer (born 1967) makes humankind itself the topic of his work--as physical sculpture, as political entity, and as participant in the work’s production. This volume is the first to both explore the spiritual dimension of his work and to position it within the contexts of Poland’s turbulent history.

For over a decade, sculptor Pawel Althamer has been at the forefront of the Polish contemporary art movement. Emerging from the infamous "Kowalski Studio" at the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, Althamer continues to investigate the intricacies of human relationships and question the limits and deeper meaning of individual and social identity. 2000 Words: Pawel Althamer presents the wide array of the artist's work in the Dakis Joannou Collection, along with a thoughtful essay by Massimiliano Gioni communicating the artist's commitment to the transformative potential of art. Conceived by Gioni and published by the Deste Foundation, each monograph in the new 2000 Words series combines a critical, forthright essay with a survey of an artist's works in this important collection.
