Content
Jürgen Claus performs a number of roles – as a painter, critic, a theorist, a teacher and a media artist. This autobiography reveals a similar interdisciplinarity. It is a review of 40 years of creating art. As a result of his close connections with contemporaries like Peter Weibel, Otto Piene and Herbert Bayer, established over many years of communication, the artist’s oeuvre is developed through language, an important medium for Claus. His work always deals with the other person’s positions and Claus thus explains his way of seeing, creating and loving art using shared memories, conversations and diary entries. He himself calls it “lived contemporaneity”.
