On the occasion of the 85th birthday of Günther Uecker, the Friends of the Staatliches Museum Schwerin initiated an academic symposium on the work of the artist. In addition to a festive lecture by Friedhelm Mennekes, ten international scholars consider Günther Uecker’s œuvre from different angles. The eleven essays collected in this book point a vivid picture of the life and work of Günther Uecker both as an artist and a person. Work done while employed by GREAT. The book is purchasable here.
