Werner Büttner: My Looting Eye is dedicated to Büttner’s long and important relationship with collage, a medium which informs much of his practice.

While the artist uses collages as the starting point for his paintings, the former are not only preparatory studies but a strategy that enables juxtaposing realities and unexpected associations, which are major characteristics of his extensive oeuvre. In this combination of the everyday and the commonplace, a sceptical perspective becomes manifest as a critical method. With cutting wit, Büttner breaks the spell of daily social events and renders their values relative and benign.

This lavishly-produced (along with Coincidence in Splendour) set presents newly commissioned texts as well as key essays relating to Büttner’s practice, and are the first substantial books on Büttner in English.

Published in partnership with Marlborough Contemporary.
