EXHIBITION: 'Poiesis' at The Artspace, Düsseldorf, Germany

Poiesis is an artists' book project at The ArtSpace Düsseldorf featuring an international selection of artists responding to three key literary works:

The West Eastern Divan - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri
The Waste Land by T.S. Eliot

According to the ArtSpace: "Poieses - the Greek term to make, stands for a verb, an action that transforms and continues the world. This term connects with the way artists’ books are created through acts of transcription and transformation."

Contributing artists include: Sibylle Gröne, Sabine Tusche, Armin Baumgarten, Frank Schablewski, Ulli Böhmelmann, Loretta Cappanera, Masami Takeuchi, Isabell Buenz, Chris Gibson, Hourig Torossian and Horst Weierstall.

For the project I created a book in response to Goethe's Divan, entitled: Goethe's Divan for Bibliomantic Study, which enables Goethe's poems to be consulted to tell the future.
