Scope and Contents

Each participating artist was invited to make a proposal for a work in public space and a work for a portfolio. These artists all use text and language for their works. An introductory essay by Tjeu Teeuwen traces the relationship between text and image from early religious works through the influences of Mallarme, cubist collages, calligrams, futurism, dada, constructivism, De Stijl, concrete poetry, fluxus and conceptual art. Essays are also included on art in public places and nomadic art. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
