Beautifully illustrated and elegantly bound, this 602-page volume is the first overview of New York–based artist Urs Fischer (born 1973) since 2009’s Shovel in a Hole. The book includes selected works thoughtfully arranged according to common threads, spanning from the beginning of Fischer’s career and concluding with his capstone NFT series, CHAOS.
A spotlight on earlier works and notations provide context for Fischer’s oeuvre. The book offers a holistic view of his career to date, showing how ideas have been nurtured over time. His sense of playfulness, humor and wry self-awareness permeates the book, with more than 700 full-color images.
