Johan Muyle
A sweeping overview of the work of a prominent Belgian visual artist

This handsome volume traces the work and career of Belgian visual artist Johan Muyle (b. 1956) from his early assemblages of found materials to his monumental paintings and recent motorized sculptures. Considered one of the most significant Belgian artists of his generation, Muyle's work has been exhibited internationally since the 1980s. In this book, a series of thematic chapters situate Muyle's oeuvre within the political and artistic context of the past thirty years and analyze the prolific artist's critical responses to concerns including religious extremism and the disappearance of collective utopias.
