Art Basel: Thomas Schütte for Cahiers d’Art

By Codi Mohr

June 20, 2014

Following the release of its newest publication, Watercolors for Robert Walser and Donald Young, Cahiers d’Art honored the book and other publications with a wooden house, designed by one of the book’s two subjects, Thomas Schütte, as the stage for its Art Basel 2014 presentation. Created with the intention of requiring a viewer to engage with the world in different ways, Schütte’s house displays the highly sought library of art editions by the legendary publishing house for its inaugural participation in the fair.

The book features watercolor paintings by Schütte from 2012 and 2013 and previously unpublished poetry by Walser written between 1924 and 1933. Walser had been intrigued by watercolors and the way the eye sees them. Schütte chose his paintings as a tribute to the late poet, to whom he dedicated the book along with gallerist Young. The book also features an introduction by Dr. Reto Sorg, Director of the Walser Archives.
