BERREBI, Sophie
Dubuffet and the City: People, Place, and Urban Space

The book examines how the city plays a role in the formation and unfolding of Dubuffet’s practice and imagination as a material, a source, and a vehicle for ideas. It analyzes works in which the artist depicts city dwellers, sites and urban spaces, and discusses his architectural projects from the 1960s and 1970s against the background of heated debates in the field of urbanism. The book accompanies and extends the exhibition ‘Jean Dubuffet and the City’ at Hauser & Wirth Zürich (10 June – 1 September 2018). The book reproduces little-known archival material from the archives of the Fondation Dubuffet and several texts by Dubuffet that are translated here in English for the first time.
