The Book Momentous


This publication, for the first time explicitly addressing an Asian audience, appeared in two languages —Chinese and English. It is organized in two parts. The first contains Kornelia Imesch’s introduction and three essays by Julien Goumaz, Franz Liebl, and Hanna Hölling, each of which analyzes the exhibited conceptual work series from different angles, addressing associated questions.

The second offers anecdotal insight into the vast oeuvre of Hannes Schmid, in the form of Zhao Lei’s intriguing personal report about the artist’s person and life. Subsequently, Kornelia Imesch provides a concise discussion of Hannes Schmid’s oeuvre, thus introducing the concluding selection of photographs taken from work series either conceptually or thematically related to the pieces displayed in the Formula1 exhibit.
