Contemporary German artist Fritz Balthaus' works are both precise experimental arrangements and ironic interventions in the art world and the exhibition business. They oscillate between image, sculpture, and architecture. They uncover the hidden processes of art production and transform them into visible works of art in space. This monograph divides his work into the categories Paper, Light, Air, Wall, and Building, implying the size, location, or medium of his images and sculptures. Whether in museums, art halls, galleries, baroque palaces and gardens, or public contexts, the works of art reflect not only the conditions of their creation, but also the surroundings of their presentation.
