This volume considers the work of Mike Kelley alongside the collaborations of Peter Fischli and David Weiss. Kelley's works are firmly anchored in an ironic, detached attitude towards his Irish Catholic upbringing; he makes use of the pictorial language of specific subcultures and the aesthetics of 'low culture,' to probe such concerns as the representation of childhood and the social construction of sexual behavior and cultural identification. Peter Fischli and David Weiss have been making art together since 1979, addressing various theoretical and philosophical explanations of the world with their subtle and humorous manipulations of common objects. The work of the American Kelley and the Swiss Fischli and Weiss resonate with each other in curious ways, most significantly in their exploration of everyday consciousness and 'low' materials. This publication documents the work of Peter Fischli and David Weiss in the Goetz Collection during a recent exhibition, along with interviews, essays and two texts by Kelley himself.
