This new publication by Hans Schabus can be seen both as a kind of gauge and as an interim report on the work of the artist.
A detail in the dimensions 31 x 23 cm was photographed of each of his works of art, and these are now reproduced in this catalogue in exactly this format, that is, in the proportion of 1:1.
It is possible through this to make comparisons and analyses of the artworks and their media and material qualities with one another, as with a sample book or a scientific experiment.
Which excerpt comes from which artwork is shown in the back of the catalogue. Here all of the works have exhibition images, which were taken during Schabus two large solo exhibitions in 2011, Nichts geht mehr at the Institute De L’Art Contemporain Villeurbanne, Lyon, and Space of Conflict at Culturgest in Lisbon.
The publication documents the most important films, collages, and sculptures from 1999 to 2011.
