They will come here too
here friend Andrew
Where else
looking for something visible
restless like files in the wind.
What’s to be gotten here a discreet platoon
glance shouldered following ...

For some, art is only about imagination and self-expression; for Jochen Gerz, it is also about our relationship to the social order. Art helps to maintain a space to speak about society, about world events, about our certainties and our uncertainties.

Judith Mastai 1993

Installation

Several tree trunks with bark, sawed into 5-cm-thick planks, wooden spacers, photographic opaque, wall text 

Tree trunks sawed into planks and painted with photographic opaque are stacked horizontally, separated by wooden spacers, as they would be at a saw mill, so that the outer form of the trunks remains recognizable. A wall text deals with doubts about artistic production and design. 

See the handwritten manuscript (mirror writing) of the same title (662).
