Description

Edited by Sophie Duplaix and published with an exhibition she curated at Centre Pompidou, this book introduces works of profound originality and critical power by Hervé Fischer, artist and essential founder of sociological art. Since the outset of the 1970s, his role in the elaboration of scrupulous, inventive thinking has influenced many. The exhibition covers periods from the 1970s until the mid-’80s, and from the late ’90s until the present, and also examines the digital in a reflection on the practices of sociological art. In his work, Fischer engages with the notion of going beyond individual work and becoming aware of the social dimension of what an artist thinks and feels.
