Full Description

A very special artist friendship: in the 1950s, Carlfriedrich Claus (1930-1998) worked on experiments that led to an outstanding synthesis of written and drawn works toward the end of the decade. The artist couple Ilse (*1927) and Pierre Garnier (1928-2014), who were also working in the field of tension between picture-texts and text-pictures, began exchanging letters with him in 1963. Over time, an intensive friendship developed. The exhibition of the Chemnitz Art Collections bore witness to this special bond. The accompanying edition of their correspondence brings together works from nearly four decades of the artists’ work as well as artist books, portfolios, and artist magazines.

Text in German and French.
