– Herald Szeemann
€ 68,- (DE)

Herald Szeemann was an instrumental figure to the 20th Century art scene. He was an exceptionally talented curator and artist who is often credited for helping to elevate curating to the state of an art-form in itself. Museum der Obsession is the result of a research into the massive collection of his work, which went to the Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles after his death. The book accompanies exhibitions of some extracts of this collection in Los Angeles, Bern and Düsseldorf. Released on the occasion of Szeemann’s 85th birthday, Museum der Obsession comprises more than 350 photographs, letters and a variety of other personal documents, in addition to a series of interviews conducted with contemporary peers.
