A selection of Erik Steinbrecher's collected sketches and drawings from the early 80ies up until now.
Erik Steinbrecher is a true art lover. He loves art and makes art ever since he can remember. This small volume for the first time combines a selection of his collected sketches and drawings from the early 80ies up until now; doodles, drafts, gouaches, chalkdrawings, montages on paper. It is about conceptual studies, outlines for artworks and concrete art.
Erik Steinbrecher (born 1963 in Basel, lives and works in Berlin) is known to a wide international audience particularly since his participation in documenta X (1997) as well as further major institutional presentations such as at Kunst-Werke in Berlin, MoMA PS1 in New York, the Kunsthalle Vienna, the Museum Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich or The Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen. His work as artist has developed in two main directions; the areas of sculpture and architecture as well as the realm of publication. Steinbrecher released numerous books and printed matters, which always expose a strong conceptual idea and function as independent artworks.
