 Item
Identifier: CC-31825-33343
Scope and Contents

In the principal essay, "My Eye is a Mouth," the curator Felicitas Thun states that the work of Dieter Roth forms the core of his self conception and of his principle of art. "Through constant self-reference the artist gives the presence of his own existence precedence over his work...Roth confronts dialogue and communications with a massive collection of items and flood of images...[He is] an artist who orients himself along the basic precepts and rules of an avant-garde, which attempts the radical task of transforming the self, his own reality, into a work and thus defends itself against institutionalisation." Most of the works in this exhibition are held by the Austrian Ludwig collection. The Sackner Archive holds several works depicted in this catalogue including "Buch AB 1973 and Roth's verlag books among others. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
