British sculpture underwent a remarkable transition in the last decades of the 20th century. The Weltkunst Collection comprises important works by 26 of the artists responsible for this transition. Many of them have gained an international reputation and sometimes notoriety in a way never achieved by their predecesors. This book, the first published of that collection, catalogues drawings and prints as well as sculpture, installation and media works. Analysis of the significance of the artists and their works is complemented by extracts from interviews with the artists themselves. The collection's location at the Irish Museum of Modern Art provides a perfect context from which to examine this unique "British" collection. The book is a guide to contemporary British sculpture, which constantly challenges the limits of visual art and questions accepted ideas of what sculpture can be.
