RE-OBJECT. MARCEL DUCHAMP, DAMIEN HIRST, JEFF KOONS, GERHARD MERZ
Category: Contemporary art monographs
Urinals, vacuum cleaners, basketballs, glass sheets livestock? This study of key moments in the history of ready-made and object-based art features Damien Hirst (London), Gerhard Merz (Munich), Jeff Koons (New York) and their shared historical point of reference, Marcel Duchamp (Paris and New York, 1887-1968). Object-based art, which grew into a major twentieth-century trend and continues today, took its cue from the ready-made, and Re-Object explores the continuation and transformation of both lines in contemporary artistic practice, via large-format photographs and analytical essays on the artists.
