Marcel Broodthaers. Musée à vendre
Die Sammlung Schmidt
“Me too, I asked myself if I couldn’t sell something and succeed in life. That was a moment when I felt good for nothing. I am forty years of age. The idea of ultimately inventing something insincere crossed my mind and I set to work immediately. After three months, I showed my production to Edouard Toussaint, the owner of the Saint Laurent gallery. ‘But it’s art,’ he said, ‘and I will gladly exhibit all this.’ […]”
This sentence was composed by Marcel Broodthaers in the official invitation to his first exhibition in 1964 in the Galerie St. Laurent, Brussels. Both exhibition and statement marked, on the one hand, the end of ten years of unsuccessful activity as poet and writer, and on the other hand the inception of what was to be an uninterrupted twelve-year artistic endeavour. In its simplicity, the sentence comes across as an ironic meditation both on his thwarted poetic career and on his possible career as a visual artist.

Ian Hamilton Finlay
Poet and Publisher
Das dichterische Werk des schottischen Künstlers, Lyrikers und Schriftstellers Ian Hamilton Finlay (1925-2006) geht über traditionelle Formen hinaus. Seine Gedichte setzte er auch als Außeninstallation in der Landschaft um, so in dem großen Garten "Little Sparta" in den Pentland Hills, wo er seit 1966 lebte. Es entstand ein umfangreiches Werk Konkreter Poesie, das er, wie die meisten seiner weiteren Texte, in seinem eigenen Verlag "Wild Hawthorn Press" veröffentlichte. Das Zentrum für Künstlerpublikationen gibt mit Ian Hamilton Finlays Publikationen einen Überblick über sein Schaffen.
In Kooperation mit dem internationalen Kulturfestival Poetry on the Road. [more...]

concepts like commentary
This exhibition is devoted to the conceptual work of the Hungarian-born artist Géza Perneczky, developed from the early 1970s onwards and encompassing the creation of concept works, conceptual photographs and artists’ books. Perneczky’s works can be situated not only in the context of conceptual art but also in those of mail art and the late Fluxus movement. His work is represented internationally in several important collections. The exhibition not only honours Géza Perneczky on the occasion of his 80th birthday but is also an acknowledgement of the gratitude of the Centre for Artists’ Publications for the donation of his significant Soft Geometry Archives.

Unter dem Radar (Under the Radar)
Underground Publishing and Self Publishing 1965 – 1975
OPENING Thursday, 29th October, 7pm with FRANK WITZEL, the 2015 German Book Prize winner for his novel "Die Erfindung der Roten Armee Fraktion durch einen manisch-depressiven Teenager im Sommer 1969".
“That unpopular label “Underground” embraces hippies, beats, mystics, madmen, freaks, yippies, crazies, crackpots, commun¬ards and anyone who rejects rigid political ideology (a ‘brain disease’) and believes that once you have blown your own mind, the Bastille will blow up itself”, wrote Richard Neville in 1970 in his book Play Power – Exploring the International Underground. He was co-founder of Oz, which – along with IT (International Times), the most influential European magazine of the dawning counterculture – was one of the magazines that played a significant role in the “importation” of “Underground” models from the USA.[more...]
