The Waldfrieden Sculpture Park is honouring the great painter and sculptor Heinz Mack on his 90th birthday with an exhibition devoted exclusively to his sculptural work. In its three exhibition halls and in the open grounds, the sculpture park presents 50 sculptures by Heinz Mack, including numerous works that have never been shown publicly before. Accompanying the exhibition is this comprehensive catalogue in German and English with numerous illustrations from the exhibition, a foreword by Anthony Cragg, a preface by Dr. Thomas A. Lange, two statements by Heinz Mack and essays by Heinz-Norbert Jocks, Norman Rosenthal, Corinna Thierolf and Jon Wood.

The essays - analogous to the illustration section, which shows photographs from all three exhibition pavilions and from the outdoor area - are devoted to the artist's wealth of forms and diversity of materials on the basis of the exhibited stone works, steles made of wood and metal, metal reliefs and screens.
