The work of the American artist Alexander Calder (1898-1976) is characterized by the change in standards. His objects range from filigree, smallest objects to large, stable and mobile objects that extend far into the room. The compilation of the works on display traces this special relationship between size, scale and space in Calder's sculptures, which unfold their unique effect in and in front of the New National Gallery, Mies van der Rohe's glass steel construction. The exhibition and the book strive for an open, experimental examination of the sculptor's oeuvre; they particularly focus on the specific spatial experiences associated with the works. Social interaction and participation are therefore central themes of the book. Richly illustrated short texts, for example on the mobiles, Authors: Joachim Jager, Maike Steinkamp, & Udo Kittelmann, Alexander SC Rower, Robert Slifkin, Elizabeth Hutton Turner, Beryl Gilothwest, Nina Schallenberg, Kaitlyn A. Kramer
