Hans-Peter Feldmann (born 1941, Dusseldorf) rose to prominence in the early 1970s, earning worldwide acclaim for his expansive and encyclopaedic photographic series. Often presented in the form of books, posters, postcards and installations, these collections link Feldmann's life-long fascination with collecting elements of visual culture.
Feldmann is a prolific producer of artist's books. His publications have been instrumental in establishing the genre as a recognisable form of artistic practice, influencing generations of artists who have followed him.
This catalogue was produced on the special occasion of Hans-Peter Feldmann's show at the Serpentine Gallery, his first solo presentation in a London public gallery.
