Exhibition: Writing is Showing. Text images and objects from Edition Block


René Block opened his gallery in Berlin in 1964 to confront the city divided by the Wall with “Capitalist Realism“, Fluxus and sound works. In parallel he has been developing since 1966 an extensive programme of graphics and multiples; the exhibition will be showing works from this covering half a century that relate to language, enabling visitors to get an insight into the many different poetic, political and conceptual strategies by which art makes words visible.
