Item description for Rockers Island Works from the Olbricht Collection by Thomas Olbricht...
The ever-growing Olbricht collection, located in Essen, Germany, has become one of the world's largest stockpiles of contemporary work--and, given its size, one of the least known. Rockers Island presents a representative selection of the works that collector Thomas Olbricht has been gathering over the last 15 years. These paintings, sculptures, photographs and installations come from artists as diverse as Diane Arbus, Stephan Balkenhol, Joseph Beuys, Maurizio Cattelan, Peter Doig, Andreas Gursky, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas, Elizabeth Peyton, Richard Prince, Daniel Richter, Ed Ruscha, Norbert Schwontkowski and Cindy Sherman. Rockers Island offers several different artistic and chronological approaches to the material, clearing fresh views, constructing innovative constellations and posing new questions for contemporary art. This richly illustrated volume provides insight into a fascinating collection.
