Ferdinand Kriwet: Yester íní Today

Edited by Gregor Jansen.

"I am nevertheless not a painter, but a writer who not only takes language literally, but also pictorially. Consequentially, this literature, which is ill-disposed towards any restrictions as regards fixed categories, now also enters the art galleries so long as it does not spread out onto large-format billboards. Making literary use of the experiences of public writing, these texts go out in public again in order to report about it to those, whose sensibilities have not yet been awoke, not yet matures and sharpened." <p>Ferdinand Kriwet, excerpted from <i>From the Word Image to the Image Word--and Beyond</i> in <a href="9783832193713.html">Yester 'n' Today</a>. Featured image titled <i>poem painting 15</i>, 1964, is reproduced from Dumont's <a href="9783832193713.html">Yester 'n' Today</a>. A pioneer in the field of media art, Ferdinand Kriwet (born 1942) began exploring the consequences of mass media and sensory overload in the 1960s through neon signs and wall paintings, stage appearances and radio plays. Analyzing the language of television, advertising and photography, the German artist describes himself as a visual poet. This book surveys 40 years of Kriwet's work.

FROM THE BOOK
"Between picture poems and poetical pictures, texts to be read and to be seen, films dealing with such American television phenomena as the first moon landing, audio and theatre pieces, spectacles and exhibitions, book productions and architectural references, Kriwet's central aspiration still remains the expansion of communicational forms and the comprehension of art as information as well as information as art. As an autodidact, he was a highly regarded outsider in the Rhenish art centre of the 1960s to the 1980s who deftly operated with numerous freedoms, and who is being read again today as an 'artist's artist' by a much younger generation. The fact that Kriwet was only rediscovered several years ago is nevertheless surprising because his esteem and influence are indisputable and a thorough survey of his oeuvre has been long overdue."

Beate Ermacora and Gregor Jansen, excerpted from the foreword to Yester 'n' Today.
