It Is the Space documents an exhibition by the German architect and sculptor Erich Reusch (born 1925), surveying works from 1935 to the present. This publication includes his well-known Plexiglas cases of the late 1960s, the Elektrostatische Objekte, as well as his various environments and sound and air works.
Erich Reusch (born 1925) was one of the first sculptors to move away from autonomous, context-independent sculpture toward “decentralised” works that included the space around them as a compositional element. Reich used such basic forms as cubes, discs and columns to explore contrary energies of dispersion and compression. This volume surveys more than 60 years of his art-making.
