Over the past twenty years, Pawe? Althamer has established a singular artistic practice featuring an expanded approach to sculptural representation and experimental models of social collaboration. This publication includes extensive documentation of his groundbreaking sculptures, performances, and participatory installations. Althamer creates portraits in materials such as plaster, melted plastic, wax, hay, ceramic, or fur, and is known for performances involving entire communities, like his neighbors in Brodno, Poland. With essays by longtime collaborators and interpreters of Althamer's practice and an interview with the artist, this publication presents a portrait of the artist as instigator, organizer, teacher, and visionary.
