A member of the panel of judges that awarded the 2009 Israel Prize to Micha Ullman characterized him as being “not only a sculptor, but also a thinker and philosopher in the field of the language of plastic art.” In 2011, the Israel Museum held a major retrospective of the work of the internationally acclaimed artist, who is perhaps best known for his moving underground library created as a memorial in Berlin’s Bebelplatz, where the Nazis burned thousands of books in 1933. The impressive catalogue that accompanied the exhibition explores five decades of his career, from his early two-dimensional, almost conceptual works to his stunning large-scale installation Wedding, created especially for the exhibition using Ullman’s distinctive sand-throwing technique. The almost 500-page long volume features hundreds of photographs – including many full-page double spreads – of his works, from hushed, small-scale pieces to sculptures and installations that are so monumental that the camera can only capture them from afar. A comprehensive essay by Yigal Zalmona incorporates texts about individual works written by Rachel Elior, Haim Be’er, Ronit Steinberg, and Amitai Mendelsohn, followed by a conversation between the artist and the Berlin art historian Matthias Flügge.
