Bruno Gironcoli (*1936) is an important figure in the field of international contemporary sculpture. The Austrian artist found his way to an distinctive formal language, which he developed further from the early wire objects to the enormous sculptures of the last two decades. Existential thematic complexes such as the relationship between man and woman, sexuality, violence and subjugation are areas he reflects on in his sculptures reminiscent of „apparatuses“. Parallel to this, he created a broad graphic oeuvre. Despite his artistic importance and international recognition, a comprehensive appreciation of Gironcoli’s work is still lacking. With a focus on the sculptural oeuvre, this book offers for the first time a complete overview of his oeuvre. In addition to the catalog raisonné of sculptures, Gironcoli’s writings are published together for the first time, as well as a series of previously unpublished interviews from 1994 and 1995 in which he speaks at detailed about his work.
