This comprehensive catalogue accompanies a worldwide touring retrospective exhibition of Thomas Demand’s work, focussing on four important areas of his oeuvre. Thomas Demand has spent the last two and a half decades bringing together his talents as both a sculptor and a photographer to capture the feedback loop between the world we inhabit and the photographic documents of it which lie at the root of our contemporary image culture.
Bringing together a wide-ranging survey of photographs that span the arc of his career, »The Stutter of History« will provide both an overview of the artist’s way of seeing the world and lesson in how we might approach the onslaught of historical events that we consume through the world of images. This extensive book displays the breadth and depth of Demand’s artistic accomplishment, demonstrating in one volume why he is considered one of the world’s foremost contemporary artists.
Includes a new short story by award-winning author Ali Smith written in response to a work by Demand, as well as an illuminating essay by Douglas Fogle, curator of the exhibition, and an essay by Margaret Iversen.
