Hans Josephsohn (Scheidegger & Spiess)
Scheidegger & Spiess, 2020
Hans Josephsohn was born in 1920 in Königsberg (now Kaliningrad, Russia) and came to Zurich via Florence as a Jewish immigrant in 1938. In more than six decades he has created a sculptural oeuvre that transcends the fashions and fads of the art world and yet testifies to his incomparably sensitive understanding of our age. This comprehensive monograph introduces the reader to Josephsohn’s approach, outlines his development and places him within the development of twentieth-century art. The book shows the fascinating uniqueness and the tense calm of an oeuvre that offers many young artists an attitude to art that mirrors their own concerns.
