Precarious Worlds: Contemporary Art from Germany


image alt

Sabine Eckmann with contributions by Svea Bräunert 

Published to accompany the exhibition of large-scale new acquisitions by the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, this book explores thematic connections among some of Germany’s most influential contemporary artists. By artists Franz Ackermann, Cosima von Bonin, Thomas Demand, Isa Genzken, Charline von Heyl, Sergej Jensen, Michel Majerus, Manfred Pernice, Wolfgang Tillmans, and Corinne Wasmuht, the featured artworks investigate issues relating to digitization, material instability, and the individual’s attachment to—and detachment from—historical notions of place.
