Daniel Spoerri

Daniel Spoerri is a Swiss artist and writer born in Romania in 1930, who has been called “the central figure of European post-war art” and “one of the most renown[ed] [artists] of the 20th century.” Spoerri is best known for his “snare-pictures,” a type of assemblage or object art, in which he captures a group of objects, such as the remains of meals eaten by individuals, including the plates, silverware and glasses, all of which are fixed to the table or board, which is then displayed on a wall. He also is widely acclaimed for his Anecdoted Topography of Chance, a literary analog to his snare-pictures, in which he mapped every object located on his desk at a particular moment in time, describing each with his personal recollections evoked by the object.
