The publication presents selected works by international artists that make explicit reference to Marcel Broodthaers (1924-1976) or that examine and further develop motifs from his oeuvre.

These motifs include those that question the museum as an institution, examine imagination and outer appearance as a deconstruction of the cinematic image, and explore the relationship between language, writing and images. Ideas that were dealt with much later under the heading of institutional criticism also turn up in Broodthaers’ work, whose radical, pioneering qualities survive to this day.

The catalogue includes works by Tacita Dean, Olivier Foulon, Andreas Hofer, Henrik Olesen, Kirsten Pieroth,Stephen Prina, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Susanne M. Winterling und Cerith Wyn Evans.
