The Mercedes-Benz Art Collection Artist Book accompanies the exhibition On the Subject of the Ready-Made or Using a Rembrandt as an Ironing Board. For the show at Mercedes-Benz Contemporary Berlin (November 25th, 2016 – May 14th, 2017),  Bethan Huws has devised a location specific project, selecting examples of artworks from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection. The curatorial concept starts with Marcel Duchamp’s praxis of a combinatorial thinking, the inherent logic and the analytical wealth of allusions found in Duchamp’s conceptual approach. Bethan Huws represents these aspects through the visual neighborhood of artworks from one hundred years of art history, surprisingly juxtaposed so that they provide a commentary on one another.

The Artist Book is an exhibition guide with a foreword by Renate Wiehager on the exhibition concept and texts by Bethan Huws. The publication comes together with a bruchure, which discusses the featured art works form an art historical viewpoint.
