  • Description

    • An idea first conceived in Stéphane Mallarmé’s Un coup de dés (A roll of the dice), 1897 has become an integral part of avant-garde methods of the 20th century: unmasking language as a convention that serves to subject the individual to discipline and a regulated system of capitalist exploitability. Against this situation, language is to undergo a revision in order to reconquer its imaginative space, to break free of its purposive character. In this comprehensive publication accompanying the homonymous exhibition well-known art historians and artists reflect the poetic and subversive potential of language.
