Abstract (English)

Represented by images and brief texts, the items in the first exhibition devoted to Gerz’s work for public spaces, from the 1980s and 1990s, are supplemented by documentation of works from 1968 to 1999, providing a comprehensive survey. The essayists view Gerz’s work variously as an extension of writing and performance in a non-authoritarian language, as a continuation of the spirit of 1968, and as a dialogic means of expressing marginalized voices. All note that Gerz creates public spaces that are truly civic and alive through dynamic, immaterial processes. Biographical notes. Bibl. 8 p.
