What happens when we discover objects that are no longer in a familiar context? Do new worlds open up? In his works—whether sculptures, objects, films, or sound installations—Vittorio Santoro explores these kinds of constellations, which he describes as “sculptural situations.” His repertoire of media also includes the written word and language. Each work begins with an idea, a “phenomenon in the world” that occupies his mind. This is the first extensive monograph of the artist’s work, and it accompanies the eponymous exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Lucerne. Besides new works and photographs of installations he has had in various galleries and museums in the past fifteen years, this book also contains new essays on Santoro’s video installations and public art interventions, as well as on the material qualities and architectural approach of his art.

Multi-lingual edition: German, English, French
