Opening: Oct 5, 2012
Curated by: Roman Grabner
Venue: BRUSEUM

On the basis of picture poetry and manuscripts from the literary legacy, which contains over 700 notebooks and around 20,000 written pages, the exhibitionThe Gardens in the Exosphere shows that Günter Brus was very active as a writer over the last 30 years, and at the same time illustrates how he bursts through genre boundaries.

 

The exosphere is the outermost layer of the Earth’s atmosphere, and is a floating transition into interplanetary space where gravity gradually loses its effect. Günter Brus locates his stories there, where they are penetrated by life, his pictures and his poetry

 

With Günter Brus the picture and text are in constant dialogue, they complement each other reciprocally. Therefore handwriting is for Günter Brus also an “unpaid art of painting”, whose line creates words and pictures of the same intensity.
