What Roman Signer terms his ‘small and large happenings‘ have secured him an international reputation. His spectacular events involve dynamite, combustion, and explosions.
Organized as a reader, this publication examines Signer’s oeuvre since the 1970s, pulling together texts from different periods on heterogeneous aspects of his body of work for the first time.
Articles include specialist analyses of specific pieces and topical essays treating fundamental issues linked to his radical understanding of sculpture and the attendant philosophical questions it raises.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition in 2014-15 at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen and KINDL – Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst, Berlin.
