Plötzlich diese Übersicht gathers the popular series of more than 350 hand-sculpted, unfired clay figures begun in 1981 by the Swiss artists Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012)—a masterpiece executed in an entirely unspectacular material. Fischli and Weiss’ little figures are arranged in sculptural tableaus to delineate scenes from history, culture, entertainment, sports and everyday life. The titles of each tableau, with their characteristic subtle mockery and serious irony, are an integral part of the work. Giving a sense of the incredible scale of the project and the variation of the figures, Plötzlich diese Übersicht offers a close look at one of Fischli and Weiss’ most famous and beloved works.
