The most comprehensive book to date on contemporary German sculptor Michael Sailstorfer, whose work combines subversive poetry and melancholic humor. His sculptures endure as memories as much as materials: a spinning tire expands beyond the visual, coming to life by giving off an utterly unpleasant smell of burning rubber; in a looped, slowed-down film of an exploding hangar, the building itself seems to be breathing. Includes an artist interview, fiction by Ingo Niermann and Schorsch Kamerun, an art historical text by Jennifer Allen and a philosophical contribution by Franz Xaver Baier. This book shows Sailstorfer’s importance in the contemporary art scene. Number 16 in the Black Pocket Book Series from Sternberg Press.
