RIP :: Dieter Roth

posted by Luke Frost February 7, 2012

Discovering Dieter Roth was an important moment for me. In 2004 I chanced upon a retrospective of his work packed into a warehouse in Queens’s, New York. The warehouse was Moma’s tempoary home at the time and the show was huge with a bunch of rooms dedicated to his printing activity. The security had to literally drag us out of there. Roth produced a huge body of print works in his lifetime. Experimenting, manipulating and combining the different stages of every available print process in his path. He was hugely inventive and unorthodox in his approach and he went on to develop new techniques of printing such as pressing meats, fruits and chocolate, often merged with traditional forms … Oh shits, Lion ice cream hits!
