The 80s Revisited: From the Bischofberger Collection Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The 1980s saw a vibrant overhaul of both figurative and abstract painting, intensified by the raw energies of street art and magnified by the booming art economy and a larger culture of glitz and brashness. The Swiss art dealer Bruno Bischofberger dedicated himself to the art of this young, "wild" generation and thus assembled one of the most significant collections of 1980s art, acquiring key works by John Armleder, Miquel Barcelo, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mike Bidlo, Francesco Clemente, George Condo, Enzo Cucchi, Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Rainer Fetting, Peter Halley, Keith Haring, McDermott & McGough, Muhlheimer Freiheit, David Salle, Salome, Kenny Scharf, Julian Schnabel, Philip Taaffe and Andy Warhol. It is around Bischofberger's unsurpassed collection of these works that this massive volume is built. Assembled by Thomas Kellein, "The 80s Revisited" contains nearly 300 color plates of works by these artists, and thus provides a definitive guide to that lively decade.
