until 26.01. | #2306ARTatBerlin | Galerie Barbara Wien currently shows the exhibition the big aspiration of the small picture

One of Dieter Roth’s most important books, Mundunculumfrom 1967, is about perception, vocabulary and the world. In one of the pictures in this book, Roth shows “how a small picture can have a big aspiration, and a big picture can have a small aspiration”. It’s a sketch that outlines the impact of seeing – in the mind of the beholder, big can have a relatively small impact, whereas small can have a bigger impact. The sketch is of magnificent simplicity, and that’s the crux of the matter.
