About the exhibition

For the Museum Brandhorst, artists’ publications play a significant role in both their collection and their program. With exhibitions such as Reading Andy Warhol (2014), Ed Ruscha: Books & Paintings (2013) or Picasso Artists’ Books (2010), the importance of books as an artistic medium has been repeatedly brought to the fore. This Spot On exhibition presents notable recent acquisitions from the last few years that address the book as a space for reflection and a formal medium on the one hand, and as a site of political debate on the other.

With books and works by Richard Artschwager, Paul Chan, Jacqueline Humphries, Arthur Jafa, Kara Walker, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Lawrence Weiner, and many more.
