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.

The ANSICHTEN (‘VIEWS’) series has been created for art lovers and teachers. Packed with insights, the series allows you to explore the works in the Fondation Beyeler in greater depth. 

Each ANSICHTEN volume also contains a section specifically designed for art educators. This part of the book suggests ideas for practical exercises and experiments that can be performed in the museum, in the classroom or at home.

The ANSICHTEN series published by the Fondation Beyeler is an enjoyable and entertaining way of deepening your knowledge of a work of art.
