Library Shelf Location 18.BAYR
Publication Date Dec 2017

This monograph dedicated to the renowned German artist Thomas Bayrle (born 1937) accompanies and expands upon a major survey exhibition, the artist's first major American museum presentation. Thomas Bayrle: One Day On Success Street traces the artist's nearly 50-year-long exploration of the complex impact of technology on humans and their environments across a range of mediums including painting, sculpture, video, collage and installation. Bayrle is best known for his "super-forms," large images composed of repetitive, cell-like patterns, bridging pop and conceptual art.

Featuring over 100 works from the 1960s through the present day, this volume highlights Bayrle's focus on the experience of the urban citizen and the artist. Essays by Lars Bang Larsen and Tom Holert contextualize the artist's work over the last half-century in dialogue with the ideological, technological and cultural histories of postwar reconstruction in Europe.
