Thomas Bayrle


All-in-One represents a first attempt at offering an overview of Thomas Bayrle’s multifaceted practice, from his first kinetic machines to the recent engine installations.

Amply illustrated, the catalogue highlights not only the serigraphies and super-images Bayrle is perhaps best known for, but also his sculptures, his early work as a graphic designer and publisher (included is an illustrated bibliography of all of Bayrle’s artist books), his videos, as well as samples from his own texts (excerpts from his San Francisco Diary of 1981, reprinted here for the first time) and from his dabblings in concrete poetry.

Holding together this expansive approach are the concerns that have always animated his work: consumerism and consumer society, political propaganda, weaves and patterns, movement, sexuality, and religion.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels, 9 February – 12 May 2013.
