Based in Napa Valley, the Kramlich Collection is one of the world’s most important holdings of time-based media art. In 1997 the American collectors Richard and Pamela Kramlich commissioned Herzog & de Meuron to design a house where they could live with these artworks. This book tells the story of the collection and the long-awaited residence, completed in 2016.
I worked with the Kramlichs and collection director, the Herzog & de Meuron archive, graphic designer Joseph Logan, and the book’s general editor to give a shape to this pioneering project, developing a table of contents and list of contributors – including artists, curators and the architects – that is as varied, rigorous and discursive as the works themselves.
With contributions by Luisa Lambri, Catherine Wagner, Dara Birnbaum, Lothar Baumgarten, Jacques Herzog, Pierre de Meuron, Nicholas Serota and Lynne Cooke.
