Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The oeuvre of the American artist Ed Ruscha is difficult to categorise. On the one hand, his early depictions of company logos, gas stations and department stores are attributed to Pop Art. On the other, based on his painted word pictures and published prints of photographic images, he is primarily perceived as a conceptual artist.If his photo series document the popularity of everyday architecture, the pictures - in which text and image are intersected or superimposed - unmask the banality and the thematic emptiness of the emblems of the commercial and advertising world.The works of painted or overpainted books and the depictions of old volumes with empty pages can be seen as the artist's commentary on the book as a potential carrier of information. At the same time, they point to the information overload that today's reader is subject to.This title features Ed Ruscha's books, photographs and pictures from the Udo and Anette Brandhorst collection in Munich, and introduced here to the public for the first time.English and German text.

Riassunto: The combination of pictorial motifs and words or sentences has long been a special feature of Ed Ruscha's (born 1937) paintings. As he himself commented in an interview in 1989: "Words are pattern-like, and in their horizontality they answer my investigation into landscape ... they are almost not words--they are objects that become words." This attraction to combinations of word and image has naturally disposed Ruscha toward the book as an art form, and as both an object and subject in his paintings. This volume commemorates a bequest of paintings, photographs and books by Ruscha to the Museum Brandhorst in Munich, complementing their existing works. It offers a representative selection of books published by Ruscha, ranging from the legendary Twentysix Gasoline Stations (1962) to On the Road (2009)--a new edition, designed and illustrated by Ruscha, of Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel.
