Abstract (English)

Gorlitz and Johnson are engaged with issues of representation, in constructing notions of truth, knowledge and social identity. Formal and narrative aspects of the paintings or drawings of these artists are discussed: specifically, Gorlitz's preoccupation with nature, death and the symbolic order of language, and the aspects of physical alienation and subjective narration embodied in Johnson's work. In both cases the mediation of representation subject/object is delineated by Fischer. Biographical notes.
