DESCRIPTION

Between 1894 and 1905, a group of artists and poets who frequented the Cabaret des Quat’z’Arts in the Montmartre district of Paris produced “Le Mur” (“The Wall”), a changing display of drawings, poems, and newspaper clippings that were mounted on a wall of the cabaret. The Zimmerli’s collection features 1,500 sheets from this unique journal, in which contributors satirically commented on current events, literature, and art. Organized to complement the special exhibition “Art=Text=Art,” this installation of approximately 50 sheets fromLe Mur” evokes the experience of this journal, which crossed the boundaries between the verbal and the visual.
