New York–based sculptor Tom Sachs is best known for work that engages with politics and the history of Modernism. Remixing and recycling elements of culture, Sachs’s work demands that his audience question the pervasive messages disseminated so effectively by modern media. Often creating elaborate installations restaging icons of modern design and engineering using incongruous materials, from a model Le Corbusier's infamous 1952 Unite d'Habitation made from foamcore to a plywood McDonald's, he creates unexpected juxtapositions that are both humorous and politically-minded.

Sachs is perhaps best known for his ongoing interest in examining the history, aesthetics, and legacy of the space program, particularly the Apollo lunar missions of the 1960s and 1970s. Creating full-scale, but often comically inaccurate, models of space ships, satellites, and mission control units, he emphasizes the way in which the space program was ingrained within the cultural memory of its time. 

Sachs's work has been exhibited widely, including solo shows at the Park Avenue Armory (2012), the Fondazione Prada in Milan (2006), the Astrup Fearnley Museet fur Moderne Kunst in Oslo, and the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin (2003).
