What is sculpture? An anthology

Over the past twenty years, since theory has begun scrutinizing the concept of sculpture itself, the genre has been experiencing a new renaissance as an artistic form of expression. This publication assembles essays, statements, interviews, letters, poems, and other kinds of texts by artists from all around the world on the various concepts of sculpture from 1990 to the present. Illustrations of the contributing artists’ works show the multiple facets and diversity of contemporary sculpture. In three lengthy chapters and a brief introduction, the book presents works of sculpture, the processes used to create them, different kinds of figuration, and exhibition venues for contemporary sculpture. Intended for a broad audience of artists, curators, art historians, students, and art lovers, this volume is being produced by the Anthony Cragg Foundation for the Waldfrieden Sculpture Park in Wuppertal and serves both as an important reference book as well as a source of inspiration.
