Abstract (English)

Guest curator Martha writes on the opposition that are playfully explored in the sculptures, photographs and films of Fischli and Weiss, and places their depictions of order and chaos within the context of Switzerland's social climate. Included is an essay on their film "Der Laufe der Dinge" ("The Way Things go") by critic Frey. Biographical notes. 14 bibl. ref.
