Library Shelf Location 18.MEES
Publication Date 2008

Meese has been shocking and captivating audiences worldwide with his multimedia performances in which he incorporates allusions to German mythology and autocracy, uses pop art and gothic overtones, and offers political commentary. His newest work, "Fraulein Atlantis", involves an overflowing pressure chamber in which objects, pictures and sounds combine to form a bubbling volcanic current. The installation, which is debuting at Austria's Essl Museum, is displayed concurrently with 40 of Meese's theatrically inspired paintings. This volume captures the excitement and depth of Meese's art and includes an interview with the artist as well as essays which explore the manifold aesthetic devices and interpretations that make Meese one of the most talked-about artists of his time.
