For almost ten years Tony Oursler has withdrawn himself from the art world.
This catalogue presents large format pictures of new works created for the Kunsthaus Bregenz. In a well-informed essay, Friedemann Malsch of the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein connects Oursler’s complete oeuvre to his current works, whose central themes are consumption and advertising. Tony Oursler discusses his new motivations, which are expressed through the incorporation of painting, with John Welshman, and Gunter Gebauer examines his ambivalent approach to the media world, fluctuating between fascination and criticism. A CD compliments the numerous illustrations.
