Günther Uecker is among the outstanding German artists of worldwide renown. For several years now Staatliches Museum Schwerin has been working on compiling a comprehensive collection of Günther Uecker’s oeuvre unparalleled among German museums.
The collection, resulting from the purchase of a private estate, encompasses objects from the late 1960s to the early 1980s and reflects the sheer diversity of Günther Uecker’s artistic work.
This catalogue provides a sound overview of Günther Uecker’s oeuvre in the form of numerous essays, which were written for a major international symposium. It shows various facets of his work, painting a vivid portrait of the artist including his beginnings in Mecklenburg and his involvement in the group ZERO, which put him on the international stage.
