Visible World compiles nearly three thousand photographs taken by Peter Fischli and David Weiss over the course of fifteen years. Depicting almost every corner of the globe, from deserts and mountains to cities and jungles, the collection is as quixotic as it is encyclopedic. To capture all of the world’s visual diversity is an impossible task, but Fischli and Weiss have embraced it with their characteristic enthusiasm and wonder. In the same tradition as their 1982 artist’s book Suddenly this Overview, Visible World was conceived and designed by the artists.
