Following a Marcel Duchamp approach, Haim Steinbach’s precise arrangements of mass-produced and found objects not only mirror a consumerist culture, but display the artist as collector and curator of cultural artifacts. Steinbach has redefined the status of an object, as he emphasizes their use in communication – they affect or remind us, are used as ritualistic tools or prestigious elements. His work is held by several collections, including Tate Modern in London, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, among others.
