This volume collects the complete sculptural work of Jonathan Meese-which tend to quickly spill over into paintings, installation, video and collage. Meese is the maker of his own cosmos, which is inhabited by Caligula, Stalin, the Marquis de Sade, Richard Wagner, Balthus and Dr. No, to name only a few. Pursuing this cosmos, Meese has now rediscovered Atlantis and here reaches "The Arch-State of Atlantisis.
Over the past 20 years, German painter, sculptor, performance and installation artist Jonathan Meese (born 1970) has explored themes of ancient myths, heroic epics and history (particularly that of Germany). This catalogue is the most comprehensive retrospective of his provocative work.
