Thomas Hirschhorn : Deleuze monument by Anna Dezeuze( file )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,089 libraries worldwide
"Thomas Hirschhorn's Deleuze monument was conceived for 'La beauté' in Avignon in 2000. It comprised four elements: a rock inscribed with a quotation, an altar, a monumental sculpture and a library including books by and about Deleuze. Located in the Cité Champfleury, outside Avignon's historical walls, Deleuze monument embodied Hirschhorn's desire to put his work 'in a difficult situation' between reality, politics and aesthetics, and marks a significant turning point in his approach to producing and maintaining public works"--Page [4] of book jacket

The human factor : the figure in contemporary sculpture by Hayward Gallery( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
"'The Human Factor: the Figure in Contemporary Sculpture' brings together the work of 25 leading international artists, in whose practice the human form plays a central role. Over the past 25 years, artists have reinvented figurative sculpture by looking back to earlier movements in art history as well as imagery from contemporary culture. Setting up dialogues with modernist as well as classical and archaic models of art, these artists engage and confront the question of how we represent the 'human' today. Eschewing concerns related to psychological portraiture, these artists use the figure as a catalyst for evoking far-ranging content, including subjects spanning political violence and mortality to sexuality and voyeurism. A unique survey of figurative sculpture today, this highly illustrated volume features newly-commissioned essays by authors including Tate Britain Director, Penelope Curtis, art critic and writer Martin Herbert, Artangel co-director James Lingwood, art historian Lisa Lee and Hayward Gallery Director, and curator of the exhibition, Ralph Rugoff. Alongside full-colour images of the artists' works, the book also includes original and rarely-seen material documenting the creation of these fascinating works."--
Thomas Hirschhorn : Gramsci monument by Thomas Hirschhorn( Book )
5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 117 libraries worldwide
"Porträt des Schweizer Künstlers Thomas Hirschhorn, der mit seinen Werken herausfordert, oft sozialpolitische Kritik übt und entsprechend provoziert. Im Zentrum steht Hirschhorns Arbeit am "Gramsci Monument", einer Sozialbausiedlung in der Südbronx, die fern des New Yorker Kulturbetriebes als eine Art Nachbarschaftsprojekt entsteht. Der Dokumentarfilm beschreibt Entwicklung, Aufbau und Bewohner der multiethnischen Bronx, die in ökonomisch prekären Bedingungen leben. Dabei fragt er, was Kunst in einem marginalisierten urbanen Umfeld bewirken kann." []

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
For Thomas Hirschhorn video has always been a favored medium of expression. Since the early 1990s, he has created single video works, often using the camera to record actions, as well as making 'integrated videos, ' which are part of specific, three-dimensional sculptural works. His video oeuvre demonstrates the economy of means, the formal energy, and the direct strength, as well as the political and aesthetic conscience he has shown for 25 years in his work

Une volonté de faire by Thomas Hirschhorn( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 25 libraries worldwide
Écrire n'est pas difficile, mais nécessaire. Dans Une volonté de faire, trente-huit textes écrits en français entre 1990 et 2015 par l'artiste suisse Thomas Hirschhorn sont réunis : lettres, notes d'intention, comptes rendus de projets, réflexions personnelles, dossiers de demandes de subventions, qui se lisent comme une fenêtre ouverte sur le processus d'élaboration de son oeuvre. Car chez Thomas Hirschhorn, l'écrit a une importance fondamentale, dans son travail comme dans son quotidien : s'il est bien sûr intégré à ses oeuvres (sous forme de textes incorporés directement à son travail ou de livres, brochures, flyers mis à disposition des visiteurs), l'écrit sert aussi à fixer sa pensée sur papier, une pensée en constante évolution

Thomas Hirschhorn : establishing a critical corpus by Thomas Hirschhorn( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
Published on the occasion of his exhibition at the Swiss Pavilion of the 2011 Venice Biennale, "Establishing a Critical Corpus" is the first theoretical book to extensively examine the practice and artworks of Thomas Hirschhorn. His work elicits debate, analysis, and a profound discussion of artistic and social issues. "Establishing a Critical Corpus" is thus a charged and intense "textbook," providing texts and topics "to think about": Hirschhorn's work in general, a specific part of his work, one of his pieces, issues that extend beyond his work, and so on. These fully illustrated texts constitute the core of the book

Affect me : social media images in art ( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in German and English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
The way we deal with images has dramatically changed in the age of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Co. Images circulating on digital networks have become the most significant means of personal expression for an extended public. The interactive component of Web 2.0 offers a new dialogue-based space in which users can communicate almost in real time. The posts include banal moments from the user's life as well as visual evidence from the trouble spots of current global crises. The images move the user; they are "liked" en masse or provoke protests, induce criticism or unrestrained attacks; they instigate public debates and appear to create a sense of community. This situation is where the exhibition, "Affect Me. Social Media Images in Art", is rooted. It presents works from nine international artistic positions that refer to the new phenomena of social media imagery and select particular pictorial material that draws its energy from the context of global political conflicts and civil-social protest on the net. Their work reflects the usage and the semantics of these images as well as considering their aesthetic qualities. They elucidate the mobilising power of the images and demonstrate how these images create facts and thereby operate along the porous border between reality and fiction

"In 2011, the Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn (born 1957) was awarded the Kurt Schwitters Prize, given annually to an artist whose work references that of Schwitters.
