View artist page


The internationally renowned artist and Beuys student Lothar Baumgarten (born in Rheinberg in 1944, lives in Berlin and New York) presents the slide installation Unsettled Objects,1968-69, which was part of his exhibition American Invention at the Guggenheim Museum New York in 1993. The work allows detailed views into the world of glass cabinets of the ethnographic collection at the Pitt Rivers Museums in Oxford. It brings together texts from different authors reflecting Baumgarten’s discourse on the Western practice of the appropriation of that which is "foreign". The 48 page artist’s booklet T’E-NE-T’E (1972-74), 1974 published by Konrad Fischer, is a "mythologische Vorführung" (mythological presentation) in sequences of images and texts examining the significance of the eagle in the mythology of the North American Indians and in relation to art and science. In his mostly temporary wall installations, Baumgarten uses written language as a medium of memory. Through the use of language and images, he transfers terms and expressions from ancient or unfamiliar cultures to the context of the contemporary art scene.
