The work of a pioneering artist, whose explorations of mass culture, consumerism, and politics remain highly relevant today

This richly illustrated monograph brings together Bayrle's paintings, sculptures, drawings, wallpapers, installations, and prints from the past years to showcase his lasting influence and continued relevance. Bayrle, along with Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, is considered a pivotal figure of the German Pop movement, and his early adoption of computer-aided art production anticipated today's digital aesthetics. This remarkable book highlights the full breadth and complexity of Bayrle's career to date.
