Harald Szeemann (1933-2005) was one of the most influential curators of the late twentieth century, known for his independent way of creating exhibitions and unrelenting interest in artistic loners with strong attitudes and powerful personalities. This volume describes the 'Szeemann principle' and provides an overview of the most important moments in his curatorial career, including the legendary exhibitions 'When Attitudes Become Form' and 'documenta 5'; the great thematic explorations such as 'Bachelor Machines' and 'Der Hang zum Gesamtkunstwerk'; and the Biennials in Venice, Lyon, and Seville. Includes bibliography.
