Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties
This 45-minute documentary by Ralph Goertz follows the widely acclaimed exhibition Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties, which toured internationally and was presented at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and The Museum of Modern Art in New York in 201314. The exhibition offered a long-overdue survey of Oldenburgs artistic development from the late 1950s to the mid-1970s, examining works such as the Mouse Museum, The Street and The Store, as well as the various soft, hard and giant versions of his object sculptures from the 1960s. Goertz was allowed to accompany Oldenburg over the course of three years, during the setup of his exhibit at the Mumok Vienna and the Museum Ludwig Cologne, also recording him at his studio in New York. The DVD format is PAL only.
