Thomas Schütte: United Enemies

Matilda Olof-Ors, Bente Larsen, Daniel Birnbaum

Thomas Schütte works in a wide variety of styles and the formats range from monumental sculpture, installations and architectural models, to drawings, watercolours and prints. The exhibition and catalogue Thomas Schütte: United Enemies takes the artistʼs sculptural works from the past two decades as its starting point. The book is richly illustrated and presents an introduction to the artist by Moderna Museet’s curator Matilda Olof-Ors. The essay by Bente Larsen, Professor in Art History at the University of Oslo, focuses on the fragmented body and how this aesthetical and philosophical concept relates to Thomas Schütteʼs work. Moderna Museet’s director Daniel Birnbaum refers to Franz Kafka when he describes the sculpture Vater Staat, placed at the entrance to the museum during the exhibition.
