Babies, cuddly toys, teddybears and other stuffed animals are slowly edging their way into contemporary art. It almost seems as if they have secretely been concocting a plan to invade the art world. What are their intentions? This small but select catalogue accompanied to the exhibition that intended to particularly focus on the disturbing character of this seemingly charming art. A treasure trove for art enthusiasts and collectors of art books alike. Lidy Jacobs, Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Paul de Reus, Sandy Skoglund... were some participating artists and Dick Bruna created an cute cover design especially for this catalogue.
