Published on the occasion of a Fundación Jumex exhibition, this Franz Erhard Walther sourcebook compiles texts that are key to interpreting Walther’s objects and to assessing the cultural impact of an artist who, in the 1960s and '70s, assiduously avoided joining any group or art movement.

Franz Erhard Walther: 1. WerksatzFranz Erhard Walther: 1. Werksatz

Published by MAMCO Geneva.
Text by Thierry Davila, Erik Verhagen.

In 1991, as MAMCO Geneva was preparing to open, founder and museum director Christian Bernard asked several artists to think about how they would like to sum up their practice for presentation in the museum. German artist Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) proposed a “Werklager”—a storeroom containing works produced between 1961 and 1972. Walther’s “Werklager” has been on display at MAMCO Geneva almost without interruption since the museum opened more than 20 years ago.

At the heart of this collection is Walther’s 1. Werksatz, or First Work Set, series of wearable fabric objects from 1963–69. Walther described these objects as “instruments for processes”; activated by bodies (pulled through openings, connected by straps, tied and fastened in) or while they lay dormant, they constitute a form of participatory minimal sculpture. Emphasizing process and activation, these pieces circumvent “the seemingly inviolable contract that a work is an object produced by an artist,” as the artist put it. “I started conceiving my work out of an action, out of an act.” Franz Erhard Walther: 1. Werksatz, copublished with the Franz Erhard Walther Foundation, focuses on this groundbreaking series.

Franz Erhard Walther: The Body DrawsFranz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws

Published by Henry Art Gallery.
Texts by Luis Croquer, Clément Dirié, Lucia Schreyer, Franz Erhard Walther, Gregory Williams. Interview by Elena Filipovic.

A contemporary of Donald Judd and Richard Serra, the highly influential German artist Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) has been investigating the spatial and sensorial and dimensions of forms for over six decades. Walther’s sculptural practice is rooted in performance and collaborative situations, challenging traditional notions of sculptural process and product.

Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major US show since he was included in the 1969 Spaces exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, Franz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws features new scholarship by Luis Croquer, Clément Dirié, Lucia Schreyer and Gregory Williams, an interview and a newly translated text by the artist. Nearly 100 color photographs, including archival images and images of the exhibition installation, document drawings, photographs and sculptures produced between 1957 and the present.

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Elena Filipovic. Interview by Eric Walther.

It seems only appropriate that this new publication from Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) should take the form of an inviting, brightly colored pop-up book: since the 1960s, the pioneering German artist has been celebrated for the performative and inclusive nature of his sculpture.

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Text by Luisa Fink, et al.

Well known for his interactive fabric-based sculptures (exhibited at Dia: Beacon in 2012), Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) has developed a new conception of sculpture as performative object. Besides sculptural works, this volume presents drawings and photographs that delineate the performance dimensions of the sculptures.
