1930 - 1998
Died in Basel (Switzerland), born in Hannover (Germany).
Dieter Roth first works as a graphic artist, makes artist’s books and art work related to geometric abstraction. Invited by his friend Daniel Spoerri to participate in Antwerp, Roth sends him sketches for two works from New York. Spoerri stands in for the construction and installation. The metal heap with criss-crossed spanned rope – lost, but reconstructed by M HKA with permission of the artist’s estate – can be seen as an ironic comment on Roth’s earlier work, and as first step towards the radically playful, intentionally chaotic oeuvre that would follow.
