Scrapbooks 1969-1985

In an ensemble, Walter Pfeiffer’s scrapbooks create a unique Wunderkammer. Pfeiffer’s Polaroid’s and photographs interchange with miscellaneous objects – newspaper clippings, postcards, packaging, tickets – and brief punning notes.

Pfeiffer assembles this archive into a large collage full of surprising references and comparisons that are both a visual diary and the creative foundation for his artistic work. Pfeiffer’s scrapbooks sharply reveal his keen view of Eros, Zeitgeist and popular culture, along with his disrespectful humor as well as his appreciation for the poetry in the mundane and banal. Offering a view into Pfeiffer’s meandering and playful universe, they are a contemporary document that captures the Zeitgeist of the 1970s and 1980s with an ephemeral elegance.

  • Overcoming Originality: MAURIZIO CATTELAN and Gucci Steal Shanghai

    Speaking about his new show at the Yuz Museum in Shanghai, a collaboration with Alessandro Michele of Gucci, artist and curator Maurizio Cattelan says, “We are both fascinated witnesses of the overcoming of originality in our contemporary society.” The exhibition brings together works from more than 30 artists that, like Cattelan’s own oeuvre, question notions of reproduction and newness, considering the lives of copies, and the overdue absolution of the copyist.More
