Camden Arts Centre Dieter Roth Diaries
Dieter Roth Diaries

17th May - 14th Jul 2013

Throughout his career, German-Swiss artist Dieter Roth (1930-98) worked with obsessive energy, his prolific output comprising installation, sculpture, drawing, video, assemblages and books. Much of his work was a diary of sorts - a record of his relentless and impassioned engagement with life. 
The exhibition focuses on Roth's diaries with his personal writing as its central theme. These intimate books served as agendas and 'to do' lists as well as a place for the working through of ideas. They were a space to record appointments, addresses, lists and deadlines but also drawings, photographs and poems.
