  • First monograph on the artist in English, featuring work from the last twelve years
Full Description

German-born artist Thomas Müllenbach plays with our everyday perception of the normal and well-known and undermines our collective ideas of sense, value, and purpose of the visible world. To this end, the now Zürich-based artist explores the discipline of art history and puts the possibilities and limits of painting up for discussion. This lavishly illustrated new monograph features a range of Thomas Müllenbach’s paintings and drawings. Published in conjunction with a recent exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich, it focuses on Müllenbach’s more recent works, many of which he created especially for this show. Essays by Elke Bippus and Juri Steiner and a conversation between curator Beatrix Ruf and Thomas Müllenbach complement the illustrations. Text in English and German.
