Matt Mullican

Mapping the World

The publication ‘Mapping the World’ provides an overview of the artistic work of the American artist Matt Mullican over the past fifty years.

Matt Mullican is considered one of the pioneering representatives of the so-called Pictures Generation, which in the mid-1970s examined the influence of mass media images on everyday perception and thus declared them to be an integral part of artistic debates.

For decades he has been working on an artistic systematization of his worldview, which he tries to capture in a wide variety of media and large-scale installations.

His work is multi-layered, ranging from painting to various printmaking techniques to sculptural works and performances; his exhibitions always interact with the spatial circumstances.

Published on occasion of the large scale retrospective ‘Matt Mullican – mapping the world: 50 years of work’ Kunsthalle St. Annen, Lübeck 2022 – January 2023.

Matt Mullican was the 2022 Possehl Prizewinner for International Art; a prize awarded by the Possehl Foundation every three years to honour living artists with national and international renown for their life’s work.
