Claes Oldenburg in Venice
The Course of the Knife
Milan: Electa, 1986.
The epic collaboration of Claes Oldenburg, Coosje van Bruggen and Frank Gehry, around the events of the 1994 Venice Biennale, to unite street theatre and oversize Pop objects in a celebratory dance.
Performances around Venice lead to exhibitions all over the world of an iconic Swiss penknife boat with accompanying structures and Commedia del Arte costumes.
