OPENING: August 31, 7 PM

In recent years, numerous artists have published fragmentary novellas, film scripts, plays for theatre and radio and conceptual texts. Writing and working with texts are understood as an independent process, as a specific form of artistic activity and as a possibility of expressing public thought. Influenced by contemporary theory, historical scripts or socio-political changes the artistic texts become source-codes for various forms of presentation. Against this background, the exhibition, »Scripts«, focuses on writing as a model, the translation and appropriation of already existing texts, as well as their transformation in various media or visual forms. The international group exhibition collects together a wide variety of text-forms as well as artists’ publications, live productions, films, photographs, prints, sculptures and installations.
