Erick Beltrán: Analfabet

Essay by Matthijs van Boxsel.
Visiting Syria, Mexican artist Erick Beltrán found himself in a sea of unintelligible words on signs. His “word blindness” led him to ponder the “inner meaning” of the characters, not so much in semantic function as in form. Accompanying an exhibition at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, which brought together photographs, texts, and a workshop led by a Chinese master calligrapher, this publication explores the puzzles posed by letters and will interest any traveler who has been similarly at sea.
