Since the late 1970s, the sculptor Raimund Kummer has been working to expand the concept of his field. He realizes sculptural works and installations in a spirit of material exploration, intervening into urban spaces, exhibition situations, and private settings: every site to him is a possible site for art, and found situations become sculpture in the photographs he takes of them. This book brings together the artist’s various approaches in a documentation of the self-retrospective Kummer realized in 2022 with a double exhibition at the Braunschweig University of Fine Arts. There he installed a new hybrid sculpture in the assembly hall, while in the gallery spaces he created an exhibition compiled from his archive of black-and-white photos that had never been shown before. In these photos, he captures conditions, spaces, and actions on camera; they serve as working sketches, as the making-of of a sculptural piece, or as material explorations of photographic technology itself. The artist has compiled over a thousand of these images, newly developed the photos, and staged them in the gallery space as a thematic parcours. The book follows this staging by following Kummer’s own view of the exhibition situation. With additional notes on the works by the artist and two conversations about both parts of the exhibition, Kummer’s work serves as a map to the changing discourse on sculpture and one of its important protagonists in 45 years of work history.


“Art from Life is the basis, a kind of report or introspection—field recording in your own pigsty. These and similar situations had the effect of suddenly opening up what had come down to me as academic doctrine, due to the factuality of living conditions … The photographs depict where I anticipate something, discover something, or present a form of possibility. Like a sketch, idea, or draft—the photos often capture a first thought; the only question is, of what?” —Raimund Kummer
