REMY ZAUGG: THE QUESTION OF PERCEPTION. Ed. by Javier Hontoria and Eva Schmidt. Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft mbH, Cologne, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 216 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783864421426 In English.
Publisher's description: For renowned Swiss conceptual artist Remy Zaugg (1943-2005), the artist's role in society and the influence of perception on artistic production and its reception was as central to his work as his painting. Zaugg considered painting to be basic research for his artistic practice -- a practice marked by its interdisciplinary approach and theoretical foundation. His theoretical discussions -- in particular the book, The Art Museum of My Dreams. Or the Place for Work and People (1987) -- are important texts for art historians and artists, and his many collaborations with world-renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron have met with international praise. Timed to coincide with the tenth anniversary of Zaugg's death, this retrospective publication gathers the artist's paintings, works on paper, public sculptures, architectural designs, and selected writings by the man who questioned everything the world took for granted, garnering the title, "philosopher-artist." Essays by Mathilde de Croix, Christian Spies and Jean-Christophe Royoux.
