Erwin Wurm has risen to become one of the biggest stars of contemporary art since the 1980s. Humor, pop, self-irony, and social criticism merge into an internationally sought-after synthesis of the arts. Using key works selected by Wurm himself for this book, Rainer Metzger guides us through the artist's life and work: from his still largely unknown early work to the "One Minute Sculptures," which mark his rise in the global art world, to socially critical works such as "Car Big" and, most recently, "Icons." Wurm's work extends far beyond the art world, as he has not only influenced pop culture and fashion photography but has also invited a new and broader audience to engage with contemporary art.
