The exhibition catalog “Bruce Nauman: Disappearing Acts” accompanies the retrospective of the same name at Schaulager, which was conceived in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The richly illustrated book offers a comprehensive overview of Nauman’s career spanning more than fifty years of artistic activity in a diverse range of media. Nauman’s works are very direct and confrontational and often have the character of simple exercises or critical self-interrogations. Whether through drawing, print, video, sculpture, sound or language, performance or complex installations—the artist consistently explores fundamental questions that examine the phenomenological and psychological experience of body, time, space, movement and architecture. A wide selection of authors turn their attention to series and themes that have previously been neglected in the critical examination of this body of work, such as Nauman’s interest in architectural models or the significance of color. In addition to an extensive introduction on the exhibition concept, 17 shorter essays concentrate on specific recurring ideas or media. An illustrated selected exhibition history featuring numerous rare or previously unpublished images completes the volume.
