800 views of airports by Peter Fischli( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

800 Views of Airports documents a lengthy series of work by Peter Fischli (born 1952) and David Weiss (1946-2012). For this ongoing documentary project, the artistic duo photograph the airports they passed through in their travels around the world over nearly 25 years, in a quest for exotic banality throughout different cultures. Their images of these nondescript airports focus on the humdrum aspect of air travel: the fuel vehicles, the baggage trucks, the daily routines of airport workers, the long antiseptic corridors and sprawling tarmacs surrounded by panoramic views of empty vistas

Sonne, Mond und Sterne by Peter Fischli( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in German and English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Von den 840 Seiten des Ringier Geschäftsberichts 2007 sind 40 dem Geschäft gewidmet und 800 der Kunst. Wobei Peter Fischli und David Weiss das Geschäft von Ringier zur Kunst gemacht haben, indem sie 800 ganzseitige Inserate ausgesucht und kommentar- und bearbeitungsfrei abgedruckt haben. Wie ein Hochglanz-Telefonbuch fühlt sich das Teil mit dem dünnen Papier an. "Sonne, Mond und Sterne" nennen Fischli/Weiss den Fünf-Kilo-Wälzer, und es scheint, als wollten die zwei untersuchen, wovon Ringier eigentlich lebt: von Inserenten, die Glamour und Glück versprechen. Doch nicht nur Ringier und die Mitarbeiter (ich war auch einer) leben von diesen Inseraten, sondern auch Peter Fischli und David Weiss. Michael Ringier hat ihnen schon viele Werke für seine Sammlung abgekauft und auch die Arbeit für den Katalog dürften die beiden nicht gratis ausgeführt haben. Insofern kann man das Werk als Dankeschön der Künstler an die Inserenten verstehen. Zum Dank für das viele Geld, das sie an Ringier und damit indirekt auch an Fischli/Weiss überwiesen haben, erhalten sie nun ein Gratis-Inserat im Geschäftsbericht - und dürfen sich als Teil eines Fischli/Weiss-Kunstwerks sehen.

In Der rechte Weg, as they hike through the mountains at the mercy of the elements and all kinds of miracles--and, above all, at the mercy of themselves--Rat and Bear try to find reasons for all they see and experience, getting closer than expected to the right way
Peter Fischli, David Weiss by Agnes Giberne( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Schweizer Künstlerduo Peter Fischli (* 1952 in Zürich) und David Weiss (* 1946 in Zürich) arbeitet seit 1979 zusammen und bedient sich bei seinen Arbeiten einer grossen Bandbreite aller künstlerischen Ausdrucksformen. Die Publikation zeigt Skulpturen, Installationen, Fotografien und Filme der Künstler aus den letzten 25 Jahren. Es sind scheinbare Belanglosigkeiten und philosophische Grundfragen des menschlichen Daseins, die sie zu ihren ironisch durchtriebenen Arbeiten inspirieren. Schon in ihrem ersten gemeinsamen Werk, dem Fotozyklus Wurstserie (1980), scheint dieser Weg vorgezeichnet zu sein. Würste und Wurstscheiben werden in den abenteuerlichsten Kulissen zu Akteuren an filmreifen Sets. In ihrer Installation Fragenprojektion (1981-2002), konfrontieren sie den Betrachter mit alltagspoetischen Fragen, wie beispielsweise: "Findet mich das Glück?" Exhibition: Sammlung Goetz, München (8.11.2010-26.2.2011)

A rat and a bear go hiking in the open, as-it-were unspoiled countryside, at the mercy of the elements and all kinds of miracles - and, above all, at the mercy of themselves. With pure hearts and loads of goodwill, they try to find reasons for all they see and experience. Spontaneously they sometimes find themselves getting closer than expected to the right way
