If in Fact There Is a Context

By Lawrence Weiner

Series: dOCUMENTA (13): 100 Notizen - 100 Gedanken


2011. 24

10.50 x 14.90 cm

ISBN 978-3-7757-2857-7

For this series, artist Lawrence Weiner (*1942) has made an artist’s book in exactly the same format (A6) and with the same number of pages (24) as his first contribution to documenta 5 in 1972, curated by Harald Szeemann. The partly handwritten instructions, statements, definitions, poems, and pictograms give an insight into his artistic practice and—as eloquently as poetically—transfer his ideas around dOCUMENTA (13) into language. A central figure in Conceptual art from its beginnings, Weiner works in a wide variety of media including video, books, performance, and installation.
