An artist, musician, and researcher, George Steinmann is widely recognized as a crucial intermediary between the worlds of art and the sciences in Switzerland. One of his key interests for years has been the relationship between ecology and aesthetics, an exploration that has involved him in acts of creation with not just other artists, but scientists as well, working together on interdisciplinary topics.
            Call and Response presents a close look at Steinmann’s thinking and working methods and analyzes the development of his work and his collaborations across disciplines. From there, the book goes on to feature selected works from the past thirty years of Steinmann’s career, setting them in the context of contemporary artistic discourse. Published to coincide with an exhibition at Kunstmuseum Thun in Switzerland, the book is a testament to a groundbreaking, restlessly creative artist.
Helen Hirsch is an art historian and director of Kunstmuseum Thun in Switzerland.
