A concise survey of the career of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, through works from the Jochheim Collection
Christo (born 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (1935-2009) are among the most popular artist couples of our time, and have succeeded in breaking through the boundaries of the art world and arousing the enthusiasm of a broad public for their shrouding of buildings and their installations in large landscape spaces.
This volume is published for their exhibition at the recently opened PalaisPopulaire in Berlin. It presents works from the Jochheim Collection, which spans and traces the history of their spectacular large-scale projects. The focus of the volume is on the wrapping of the Reichstag, but it also presents rare early objects.
