This catalog gathers paintings and works on paper by Leipzig artist Norbert Bisky (born 1970) on the theme of family, made between 2008 and 2018, and is a companion to his solo exhibition at the Museum Langmatt in Switzerland. Bisky’s research in the museum’s archives is the starting point for his new works.

This volume offers an overview of German painter Norbert Bisky's (born 1970) provocative and complex art. Pushing the boundaries of representation, many of Bisky's figurative paintings are suffused with densely packed body parts caught in flood waves and wedged into one another.

Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s miniaturization of his oeuvre for his “Box in a Suitcase,” Norbert Bisky repainted his most significant painting of each year from 2001 to 2011 on 5 x 2 inch canvases on the occasion of his exhibition at the Kunsthalle Marcel Duchamp in Switzerland. This volume reproduces all of the works in full color, along with commentary by Bisky.
Rising Berlin-based figurative painter Norbert Bisky presents works from 1998-2007 alongside works by other artists who have been influential--among them Jim Dine, Katharina Grosse, Nicole Eisenman and his teacher Georg Baselitz. Motifs range from overexposed propaganda images from his childhood in the GDR to the dark spaces of our present moment.
