ALL-INCLUSIVE. A TOURIST WORLD
Tourism has long since become a crucial phenomenon of today's mobile world society. The traces left by travelers all over the Earth give evidence of a continually growing tourist industry and mark the beginning of a global movement that drastically transforms present-day man and the spaces he passes through. The exhibition "All-Inclusive. A Tourist World" presents numerous works depicting and critically questioning various tourist phenomena.
Documentations, parodies and defamiliarizations of traditional tourist motifs, and dream images interlink with subjects like migration, tourist industry, and global communication. The project curated by Matthias Ulrich assembles works by about 30 internationally renowned artists such as Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, Ayse Erkmen, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Tracey Moffatt, Jonathan Monk, Santiago Sierra, and Thomas Struth.
Edited by Max Hollein and Matthias Ulrich. With a preface by Max Hollein and ten texts that have emerged from a public literary contest on the subject of tourism. In addition, all works in the exhibition are described in short essays by April Elizabeth Lamm, Jessica Morgan, and Matthias Ulrich. 236 pages with 150 illustrations, German. SNOECK Verlag, Cologne.
