Detailing one of the most important contemporary German artists, this overview discusses the works of Christiane Möbus, who represented an artistic practice that made an early contribution to the extension of the art concept. The artist’s exhaustive investigation into the current possibilities of sculptural work is revealed as both poetic and precise, evincing her interest in an object’s formal and material character as well as in the traces of life that it so often reveals. Demonstrating how Möbus combines such found and invented objects in a frequently surprising and remarkable way, this analysis shows how she gives them a completely new character, revealing something fleeting, even improvised, about her objects and installations. The study contemplates the artist’s faith in the viewer’s associate ability, divulging how she intends for them to draw their own conclusions, thereby entering new spheres of meaning. This bilingual edition includes English and German.
