The catalog was published on the occasion of the exhibition Jörg Schlick (9.27.2015 – 11.22.2015) at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien.
This extensive publication is dedicated to the exuberant oeuvre of one of the most productive artists of Austrian provenance and international influence: the author, conceptual artist, musician, painter, short-film maker, video and performance artist, ballet choreographer, and stage designer Jörg Schlick (Graz, 1951 – 2005). This broad publication conceived as a retrospective brings together works from all phases of his diverse creative career and questions the myth and oeuvre of this uncompromising artist. The publication takes up a number of works that have for a long time been inaccessible to the public and includes the artist’s first catalogue raisonné.
This publication follows on a first retrospective, organized in the autumn of 2015 at the Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien, which was based on the estate and numerous loan collections to present the artist in the context of contemporaneous developments. For over three years, the institution has been working on the artist’s oeuvre and is now making it available for a new evaluation.
