PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Imi Knoebel

Works 1966 – 2014
This publication tracks Imi Knoebel’s artistic development over five decades, and documents the exhibition in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg with numerous installation photographs. The latter encompass key works and groups of works, from the Line Pictures to his current oeuvre. Essays and statements by renowned experts and companions pay tribute to the extraordinary role played by Knoebel in the art of the second half of the 20th century up to the present day. Illustrations of all the exhibits as well as an in-depth descriptive catalogue of his works, with material from the archive of the artist, make this publication a standard reference.
