OLAF METZEL: FROM THE TV TO THE FRIDGE. Karin Pernegger. Kunstraum Innsbruck, 2015. Published by Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. 20 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783864421198 In English.
Publisher's description: German sculptor and provocateur Olaf Metzel (b. 1952) became famous in one stroke in 1987 when his sculpture 13.4.81, a pile-up of metal barriers in Berlin's Kurfurstendamm alluding to a false report of a terrorist's death, unleashed a storm of indignation. Violence, racism, demonstrations and migrations across the world continue to be the subjects of this prolific artist's relentlessly provocative interventions. This in-depth artist monograph includes hundreds of illustrations of his compelling projects addressing a range of political and social issues from the early 1980s to the present, along with the artist's writings for newspapers, catalogs and magazines, gathered together here for the first time. His recent crumpled aluminum sculptures, which reintroduced the genre of relief in contemporary discourse in a surprising and confident way, are clearly described by the artist in relationship to his earlier work.
