This richly illustrated monograph brings together Bayrle's paintings, sculptures, drawings, wallpapers, installations, and prints from the past years to showcase his lasting influence and continued relevance. Bayrle, along with Gerhard Richter and Sigmar Polke, is considered a pivotal figure of the German Pop movement, and his early adoption of computer-aided art production anticipated today's digital aesthetics. This remarkable book highlights the full breadth and complexity of Bayrle's career to date.00Exhibition: New Museum, New York, USA (opening June 2018).
