Tobias Putrih - 99-07
Conceived as an archive of materials, both visual and textual, this first monograph presenting an exhaustive selection of the artwork of Tobias Putrih illuminates the thought and methodology of the artist. The publication comprises essays by Elena Filipovic, Elizabeth Guffey, Marta Kuzma, Stojan Pelko, and Monica Portillo, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives including design history, film theory, philosophy, political science, and museology, on specific veins of production that can be traced through Putrih's oeuvre.
Tobias Putrih, born in 1972 in Slovenia, lives and works in New York. His work, realized in aesthetically compelling sculptures and installations, involves a rigorous investigation of the promises and failures of powerful cultural institutions such as cinema, modernist architecture, and design, and the positivist natural and social sciences.
Edited by Thom Collins and Stuart Krimko.
Texts by Elena Filipovic, Elizabeth Guffey, Marta Kuzma, Stojan Pelko, Monica Portillo.
