Peter Fischli and David Weiss: Sonne, Mond und Sterne
A book based on Swiss artists Fischli & Weiss' art project for the Ringier AG Annual Report 2007, edited by Kunsthalle Zurich Director and Ringier Collection Curator Beatrix Ruf. "The encyclopedic element in all Fischli & Weiss pieces is just as evident in this Annual Report which is best described as an encyclopedia, obtained from hundreds of magazines, of the temptations and yearnings that mark contemporary life. The artists clearly consider print ads the most powerful embodiment of the economic principle and show their fascination with the never-ending flood of products in our lives that shape our very identities. They paired up 800 different ads and put them in an order that allows many interpretations - but tells no story." Item #256.
