Publisher's Description
From 2 October 2004, Die Familie Schneider took up residence in neighbouring identical houses in a very ordinary street in London’s East End. This book is the artist Gregor Schneider’s extension of the original work, a document and exploration of Schneider’s obsession with repression, reproduction and repetition in images and text. Die Familie Schneider was a disturbing and claustrophobic work which generated enormous public and critical interest. Internationally renowned for his unnerving presentation of normality, Schneider’s medium is the room — kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom — and cellar. In his work the domestic environment becomes the site of an unrelenting existential confrontation. Up until now, Schneider has mainly focused on Dead House ur, the 20-year ongoing transformation of his parents’ former home in Rheydt, Germany. Dead House ur was reconstructed in the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2001 when Schneider was awarded the Golden Lion for Sculpture.
