Georg Baselitz’s collected writings brings together more than 30 texts by, and interviews with, the artist, spanning the period 1961 to the present, including conversations with Hartwig Fischer, Cornelius Tittel and Frédérique Goerig-Hergott. Known for his rebellious approach to Abstract Expressionism, Baselitz here discusses the impression his paintings convey, the act of painting, his biography and much more. The texts shift between these personal pieces – some of which have never been published before in English – to interviews conducted by a variety of respected critics and art historians. These conversations present a different voice as Baselitz responds to careful and critical questions about his work.
