Wolfgang Nieblich

Handbuch einer Ausstellung

Der Versuch einer Anleitung

For the artist, an exhibition is the window to the world, which he must open wide. If he does not succeed, for whatever reason, his art will remain hidden.

Wolfgang Nieblich, an artist who has made over 500 exhibitions, has thought about what is necessary to set up an exhibition, what tools are needed and what should be done before and after an exhibition – from hammer to nylon cord, from catalog raisonné to title plate and from laudator to visitor.

For Wolfgang Nieblich the discourse with the material, form, structure, production, intellectual content, function, and versatile usage of books is the core of his artistic expression- and that with impressive complexity.  Through his dialectic search for symbolic reference, formal pleasure of experimenting, and multi-leveled, interchangeable associations between the different dimensions of books find expression.
