Erwin Wurm: Photographs
Rvb Books, 2020
This volume is published with the first retrospective of Erwin Wurm’s (1954) photographic work, organised by the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP) in Paris. It explores the eclectic practice of this Austrian artist by bringing together around 200 photographs from the late 1980s to the present, including original contact sheets and prints from the artist’s personal archive that have never before been shown publicly. In addition, the book examines the artistic process through which Wurm created many of his major works and series, and also features his recent large-format Polaroids. For Wurm, it is clear that photography is nothing less than a “sculptural” form of expression.
