A contemporary of Donald Judd and Richard Serra, the highly influential German artist Franz Erhard Walther (born 1939) has been investigating the spatial and sensorial and dimensions of forms for over six decades. Walther’s sculptural practice is rooted in performance and collaborative situations, challenging traditional notions of sculptural process and product.

Published on the occasion of the artist’s first major US show since he was included in the 1969 Spaces exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, Franz Erhard Walther: The Body Draws features new scholarship by Luis Croquer, Clément Dirié, Lucia Schreyer and Gregory Williams, an interview and a newly translated text by the artist. Nearly 100 color photographs, including archival images and images of the exhibition installation, document drawings, photographs and sculptures produced between 1957 and the present.
