Full Description

H.W. Weberhans has been an individualist throughout his career whose art has flourished primarily outside the established art world and its institutions. His art shows great clarity in shape and at the same time puts to question our conventions of perception. Weberhans’ work includes sculpture in stone, installations, painting, drawing, video and photography. This book is the first comprehensive overview of Weberhans’ oeuvre as a sculptor. It also presents his more recent work as a painter, the Schöne Bilder (Beautiful Images), and documents his first major exhibition, Affenherz (Monkey’s Heart) in 1985 at the Kunsthaus Zürich, which caused a minor public scandal. Essays on Weberhans’ life and work complement the images. Text in English and German.
