Donald Judd (1928–94) was closely connected to Switzerland. From the early 1970s until his death, the American artist produced significant exhibitions there; more importantly, though his residences in Marfa and New York are legendary, less well-known is the hotel at Eichholteren which Judd transformed into an extraordinary residence on the banks of Lake Lucerne that tests the tensions and affinities between Swiss architecture and Judd’s doctrines.
Judd also collaborated with Swiss industrial firms to produce numerous artworks and design pieces, notably the Menziken Pieces. This new volume sheds light on the artist’s collaborations with Swiss manufacturing firm Alu Menziken AG, and other Swiss companies. Donald Judd & Switzerland also examines the artist’s continuing influence in Swiss art and design. In addition, Judd’s contemporaries in Switzerland offer an expanded picture of Judd’s Swiss years.
