You may know John Armleder as a Swiss artist whose work is emblematic of 80s Neo-Geo. Or you may know him as the artist who recently hung a disco ball at The Museum of Modern Art, New York. But this catalogue raisonné of Armleder's drawings shows how great a contribution he has made to shaping of the history of recent abstraction. Collecting almost 40 years of some 600 works on paper, the book traces Armleder's career through his Fluxus, Constructivist, “dot,” and Neo-Geo periods, though it would be a mistake to pin any label on so versatile an artist and one who hasn't ever closed off a line of investigation. This branch of his oeuvre offers direct insight into his continued, often humorous confrontation with art, especially with the abstract and conceptual, and with the relationship of art to everyday reality.
