Fabric monuments   In the summer of 1995, the Reichstag building in Berlin was transformed into an immense sculptural experience by Christo and Jeanne-Claude along with a team of hundreds of workers. 

Using fabric materials has become a famous tradition for Christo and Jeanne-Claude: landscape projects in the USA, Japan, and Australia and urban projects such as the Pont Neuf Wrapped in Paris have established them as the most extraordinary artist couple of the age.

This in-depth survey of their unusual work is illustrated with absorbing photographs by Wolfgang Volz.   About the Series:
Each book in TASCHEN’s Basic Art series features:

  • a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance
  • a concise biography
  • approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions

His close collaboration has resulted in many books and more than 300 exhibitions in museums and galleries around the world.
