Peter Weibel: The Open Work 1964 – 1979

This exhibition catalogue traces internationally-renowned media and conceptual artist Peter Weibel’s artistic developments from the beginnings, through 1979. Weibel started out in 1964 as a visual poet, and was soon transferring the structures of the visual culture from the page to the screen, while still retaining the model of language as one of perception. Later, he developed a critical impulse that turned not only against art but also against society and the media itself. This specific development from the page via the screen to gallery space–all happening as early as the 1960s–anticipated many of the trends that were later to be described as conceptual art, context art, institutional criticism, and intervention. Edited by Christa Steinle and Karin Buol-Wischenau.

Text: Karin Buol-Wischenau , Huck Brigitte et al. cm 24×30; pp. 448 ; COL and BW; paperback. Publisher: Hatje Cantz Verlag, Ostfildern, 2004.
