With his conceptual, language-oriented works, the American artist Lawrence Weiner (*1942 in the Bronx, New York) expanded the notion of sculpture. His radically abbreviated phrases avoid metaphors, citing everyday speech or sources from literature or the media. The works are intended to be able to be read and used by everyone. They serve as occasion for conversation, cause for thought, and they provide recipients with space for free association.

Most of his oeuvre, which comprises more than a thousand language-related works, has already been presented in the German-speaking world—some of it either translated by Weiner himself or conceived using German as a basis. Featuring over 350 works, this is the first list of the English/German works. The artist assumed responsibility for the typography and cover design, as if the publication were one of his own works. Accompanying text and visual documents shed light on the creative process, in-situ installations, and Weiner’s way to work with text.
