Marius Glauer focuses his attention on the borderline between photography and sculpture. With his sculptural-based photography, he traverses the entire material and discursive range of what can be considered photography today. Glauer’s camera takes an intimate and revealing look at his protagonists: glittering surfaces, objets trouvés and flowers become hyperreal actors or monumental facades. As expansive, three-dimensional assemblages, his works simultaneously question the translatability of the world into the two-dimensional medium of photography. This monograph is the first to provide detailed insights into the artist’s experimental oeuvre and presents the groups of works he produced over the course of the last decade. Concise texts accompany and position his oeuvre in the social and art-historical discourse.
