In September 2020, the Copenhagen-based artist Thierry Geoffroy / Colonel (b. 1961 in Nancy, France) conceived THE AWARENESS MUSCLE TRAINING CENTER at Museum Villa Stuck in Munich. It was after this intensive participatory exhibition project, that the idea was born to create the first comprehensive monograph on his multi-faceted work from the last forty years. This upcoming publication comprises all his art formats, including the most prominent Emergency Room, Critical Run and Biennalist, which were realized all around the world. It also sheds light on the physical art works by Colonel, ranging from photography, moving image to painting, which are interconnected with his activities. Another element of the publication is a complete chronology, which covers Geoffroy s extensive activities until today. In well-researched texts, international authors elaborate on different aspects of the artist s work, and how his artistic practice draws attention to manifestations of power and injustice in a site-specific and concept-based manner.
