Dieter Roth’s wildly inventive artistic practice encompassed everything from painting and sculpture to film and video, but it is 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, newspapers or magazines in place of meat, the use of organic materials like pudding or fruit juice in lieu of printing inks, multiples of plastic toys mired in chocolate, and a dazzling array of variations on printed postcards. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, and focusing on the prolific and innovative period between 1960 and 1972, this volume highlights examples of Roth’s most exciting and innovative books and graphics.
