Luis Camnitzer: Eco BookLuis Camnitzer: Eco Book

Published by Spector Books.
Text by Karin Steffen.

What if time was an illusion and past, present and future would all exist simultaneously? According to a thesis by physicist Craig Callender, it only depends on which method we use to segment continuous space-time. This idea was an inspiration to conceptual artist Luis Camnitzeróborn 1937 in LŁbeck, raised in Uruguay, living in New York since 1964, where he works as artist, teacher,critic and art scholar. In 2011 Luis Camnitzer took a collection of essays by Umberto Eco and put them back into a new order according to an alternative method of editing. Camnitzerís Eco Book consists of 104 pages that seem hieroglyphic at first, filled with indecipherable arcane structures and signs, rendering the common mechanisms of interpretation absurd. The illegible pages are interleaved simultaneous signifiers. More than to merely look at signs, there is a need to alter them.

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Katrin Steffen, Hans-Michael Herzog. Text by Luis Camnitzer, Sabeth Buchmann, Maren Welsch.

German-born, Uruguay and New York-based artist Luis Camnitzer (born 1937) confronts awkward social and political issues head-on, always inflecting his uneasy subject matter with a keen sense of humor and irony. Over the last 40 years, Camnitzer has developed an international reputation, not only as an artist, but also as a critic, educator and theorist. A leader in the realm of conceptual and political art in Uruguay, he works in a variety of media, including installation, printmaking, drawing and photography, to explore the former Uruguayan dictatorship, and more generally the violence that governments and systems of power inflict on individuals. In his chilling 2008 work "Last Words," Camnitzer collected the final statements of death row inmates in Texas, assembling a work that compels viewers towards the very brink of mortality. This publication surveys Camnitzer's influential body of work, from 1966 to the present.
