About this item
Pipilotti Rist (*1962) is a seminal figure in the world of video art and has achieved international acclaim with her sensually unabashed video installations. Entertaining, ironic and self-assured, the artist tackles conven-tions and taboos. Kunsthaus Zurich presents a compre-hensive exhibition including both key works from the -beginnings of Rist's international career as well as new works created especially for this exhibition. The publication accompanying the exhibition is more than a classic exhibition catalog. The book is structured as a glossary and illuminates in an extraordinary way on the basis of short, alphabetically ordered contributions, the most -important themes in Pipilotti Rist's work with contribu-tions by renowned authors such as Arno Camenisch, Martin Suter or Sibylle Berg. At the same time, artist friends and art historians, among them ï¿½nne Sï¿½ll and Jacqueline Burckhardt, as well as representatives of other guilds and trades, and, last but not least, -children also have their say. Furthermore, documents and photographs from the personal archive of the artist will be published for the first time--and Pipilotti Rist chips in with poems! As a special feature, there are twelve large plates that can be removed from the book.
