Travail 1964-2006 Peter Friedl

Published by Museu d 'Art Contemporari de Barcelona, 2006, 380 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 17 × 21 cm, French

Price: €25

Produced on the occasion of Peter Friedl: Work 1964-2006 at Museu d ‘Art Contemporari de Barcelona (MACBA) from 26 may to 3 September 2006.

Peter Friedl’s practice has continually challenged the art world, as “conceptual acts,” his works take on the role of models: as exemplary articulations and solutions of aesthetic problems involving political and historical consciousness. With them, Friedl continues to transgress the borders of art, a process begun by the Conceptual Art of the 1960s, opening contemporary art to its social, economic, and institutional conditions. “Overcoming the dictate of visibility, without using text as a substitute,” is how Friedl outlines his artistic program.

With texts by Mieke Bal, Roger M. Buergel, Norman M. Klein, Bartomeu Mari;, Jean-Pierre Rehm.
