Dieter Roth Retrospective
Dieter Roth (1930–1998) seems to have made use of every available medium, and also introduced new materials to art, such as foodstuffs.
Flashbacks devotes itself to the works of the pioneers and the important early representatives of video poetry. The new medium of video allowed artists to directly reproduce what had been recorded, and to experiment with, for example, loops and other technical possibilities.
