Peter Fischli David Weiss - Visible World

For more than three decades, Swiss artists Peter Fischli (b. 1952) and David Weiss (1946 – 2012) collaborated on a remarkable body of work that offers a deceptively casual meditation on how we perceive everyday life.
For Visible World (2000- 2014), they gathered thousands of images representing both magnificent and commonplace scenes from around the globe. Depicting almost every corner of the globe, from deserts and mountains to cities and jungles, the collection is as quixotic as it is encyclopaedic. To capture the entire world’s visual diversity is an impossible task, but Fischli and Weiss have embraced it with their characteristic enthusiasm and wonder.
