Roth time : a Dieter Roth retrospective by Dirk Dobke( Book )

Sculptor, poet, diarist, graphic designer, pioneer artist's book maker, performer, publisher, musician, and, most of all, provocateur, Dieter Roth has long been beloved as an artist's artist. Known for his mistrust of all art institutions and commercial galleries--he once referred to museums as funeral homes--he was also known for his generosity to friends, his collaborative spirit, and for including his family in his art making. Much to the frustration of any gallery that tried to exhibit his work (supposedly none more than once), Roth thumbed his nose at those who valued high purpose and permanence in art. Constantly trying to undo his art education, he would set up systems that discouraged the conventional and the consistent: he drew with both hands at once, preserved the discarded, and reveled in the transitory. Grease stains, mold formations, insect borings, and rotting foodstuffs were just some of the materials used, both out of a fascination with their painterly, textural aspects and for their innate ability to make time visible and play to chance. "More is better," he once said, and more there always was. Roth never stopped working, and he believed that everything could be art, from his sketch pad to the table he sat at, the telephone he talked on, or his friend's kitchen (the kitchen was later sold to a museum). Roth Time: A Dieter Roth Retrospective is published to mark the first major survey exhibition of the artist's work since his death in 1998. Five decades of drawings, graphics, books, paintings, objects, installations, films and video works are represented. The publication offers a window into Roth's creative world, reflecting him and his era. The exhibition is organized by the Schaulager with The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Museum Ludwig,

Diether Roth in America by Dirk Dobke( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was one of the most innovative and challenging artists of the twentieth century. During preparations for a recent retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it became clear that America played a crucial role in Roth's artistic development. In Philadelphia he and his students experimented withnew graphic techniques, which resulted in "SNOW, a major work now owned by MoMA. It was in Providence that he had his first large studio, and the work made there is pivotal in the development of Roth's ocuvre, including his paintings and prints that incorporated perishable foodstuffs. In Los Angeles, Roth made his famous "Steeple Chase (A Race) exhibition, using suitcases tilled with different cheeses. Many of the works Roth created during that period are illustrated here in full color."--Publisher description

Wait, later this will be nothing : editions by Dieter Roth by Sarah J. S Suzuki( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dieter Roth's artmaking practices were wildly inventive across many different mediums, but it was arguably through his editioned works--books, prints, and multiples--that he made his most important and radical contributions. These experiments include literature "sausages" filled with ground-up books, newpapers, or magazines in place of meat; the use of organic materials like fruit juice in lieu of printing inks; multiples of plastic toys mired in chocolate; and a dazzling array of variations on printed postcards. Focusing on the prolific period of Roth's work between 1960 and 1972, this volume highlights examples of his most exciting and innovative books and graphics."--Back cover
