What are the figures saying to us?

Alberto Giacometti’s life-size ensemble of four figural sculptures was originally intended for Chase Manhattan Plaza in downtown New York. Giacometti has created a distinctly unusual monument to humankind with these two standing women, walking man and monumental head. Even if they have descended from their plinths, they remain inaccessibly alien. Through their grouping inside the museum, the figures structure their own plaza, one they share with the visitor.

ANSICHTEN no. 3 takes an in-depth look at this figural group by Alberto Giacometti. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

ANSICHTEN is aimed at art lovers and teachers looking to engage in greater depth with the works of the Fondation Beyeler.

The journal also features a practical section, which presents ideas, tasks and experiments that may be carried out at the museum, at school or at home.

ANSICHTEN playfully provides readers with thorough knowledge of the works of the Beyeler Collection.
