UTOPIE UND WIRKLICHKEIT IM WERK VON HEINZ MACK. Ed. by Wieland Schmied. Liechtensteinische Staatliche Kunstsammlung, Vaduz, 1998. Published in association with DuMont Buchverlag, Cologne. 320 pp. with 477 ills. (328 col.). 31 x 26 cm. LC 99-184397 ISBN 377013818X In German.
Providing a lavishly illustrated review of the career of prominent German sculptor Mack (b. 1931), a co-founder of the Dusseldorf-based Zero group whose experimental works have since the 1950s employed unconventional materials and innovative technologies to explore the use of light and movement in art, this substantial catalogue presents eleven critical essays and ten texts by the artist along with photographic documentation of more than 250 pieces that range from monumental vibrating "light columns" and rotating structures composed of polished aluminum plates and corrugated sheets of plexiglass to environmental installations in which massive architectonic objects reflect the blinding sunlight of the Sahara desert.
