One of today's leading international Swiss artists, Thomas Hirschhorn (born in 1957, lives works in Paris since 1984) is the author of a large body of work (site-specific installations, films, drawings, etc), immediately recognizable for its political conscience and its formal vocabulary. His work elicits debate, analysis, and a profound discussion of artistic and social issues.
Conceived entirely by the artist on the occasion of the homonymous solo exhibition at MAXXI, Rome, this volume documents Thomas Hirschhorn's research on Pixel-Collage, an impressive cycle of works realized between 2015 and 2017.
Since 2003, Thomas Hirschhorn has produced large drawings of about three by four by himself, or with the philosopher Marcus Steinweg, which he calls "Maps", in which he interacts with colored images, fragments of texts and his own comments. This volume focuses on this particular aspect of his practice.
