Exploring the ways in which the collection and storage of objects, images and information have been used as vehicles of contemporary artistic expression, this catalogue presents illustrations of more than 200 diverse works that range from installations of shelving units or vitrines containing found objects and materials to extensive photographic series and sculptures displayed in packing crates, the pieces produced chiefly since the 1960s by Duchamp, Cornell, Beuys, Artschwager, Boltanski, Lawler, Gerz, Darboven, Paik, Ruscha, Warhol, Messager and dozens of other international figures.
