Deconstructing Memory by Georg Baselitz

¥21,495 ¥17,200
The authorized monograph on one of the most influential and respected artists of our time, written with the full co-operation of Baselitz himself. Georg Baselitz, born in 1938, defied conventions throughout his prolific career of nearly sixty years. Expelled from an East Berlin art school in 1956 for 'socio-political immaturity,' he moved to West Berlin. Rejecting the dominant art trends of both sides of the country, Baselitz reintroduced the figure into art, despite its tarnished history in the context of Nazism and Communism. By highlighting 'outsider' art, including works by psychiatric patients, and drawing from a Parisian model of existentialist art and literature, Baselitz offered an alternative European tradition that preserved the human subject.
