Author Gabriele Wix, Lawrence Weiner. As always, Weiner has assumed responsibility for the book"s typography and design. Pages 200. Year of production 2012.

In 1968, Weiner wrote a declaration of intent: The artist may construct the piece. Since his first book was published, Weiner has evolved from simply describing the materials and physical processes of works to taking fragments of conversations and poems to create his sculptures. He’s sited his work on walls, windows, floors, and manhole covers of public spaces; as audio, video recordings and as printed books; as posters, graffiti and even tattoos.

His explication for this, first published in 1968 and still relevant today, evinces how Weiner revolutionized the very definition of what constitutes an artwork: (1) The artist may construct the piece. 2) The piece may be fabricated. 3) The piece need not be built.

One of Conceptual art’s most popular and iconic protagonists, Lawrence Weiner (born 1942) has stood as a pioneer for practitioners of language-based art for the last 40 years. His philosophical aphorisms, poetical declarations, idle observations and casual musings, and his appropriation of the art catalogue as artist’s book, have proved enduringly influential strategies. About 300 of Weiner’s works--whose total oeuvre to date comprises more than 1,000 works--have been presented only in German, in the German-speaking world (either translated by Weiner himself or conceived by him in German). Featuring over 800 pieces, this volume is the first catalogue raisonné of those works. As always, Weiner has assumed responsibility for the book’s typography and design. Accompanying text and visual documents shed light on his methods.
