Curated Choice #1March 2021

Curator: Kirsten Eggers (DE)
Theme: Text Works – Paintings and Other Wall Based Works

Description: By using texts as the central communication vehicle in the artistic expression, letters, numbers, and words are used as the primary means to get out the message. The most prominent example in the more recent art history might be the work by Surrealist artist Magritte “Ceci n’est pas une pipe.” (“This pipe isn’t a pipe.”), giving text a central role in understanding the work. From the 1960s on it became even more established. The written word forces the viewer to reflect. Clever word play, political activism, subversion of advertising, and appropriation of form are just some common characteristics of text art. It can challenge ideas of power, identity, and sexuality.Artists as Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, Ed Rusha, Christopher Wool, Bruce Nauman, Mel Bochner, Hanne Darboven, On Kawara, Jeppe Hein, Monica Bonvicini, David Shrigley or Stefan Marx are only a few, but prominent examples.
