about the book

Alongside the exhibition presented at Hauser & Wirth, Zurich in 2017, this monograph brings together works by the two artists, not only shedding light on the richness of their individual practices but also offering an opportunity to clearly see some shared interests and, surprisingly, how much these artists actually had to say to each other.

The Artist

Alexander Calder

Alexander Calder was born in 1898, the second child of artist parents—his father was a sculptor and his mother a painter. In his mid-twenties, Calder moved to New York City, where he studied at the Art Students League and worked at the ‘National Police Gazette,’ illustrating sporting events and the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Shortly after his move to Paris in 1926, Calder created his ‘Cirque Calder’ (1926–31), a complex and unique body of art. It wasn’t long before his performances of the ‘Cirque’ captured the attention of the Parisian avant-garde.
