Die Welt als Labyrinth. n.p. [Geneva]: n.p. [MAMCO], n.d. [2018]. 1 p.; ill.; 89,5 x 128 cm; white and red ink on black stock. One of 50 printed.

Poster of the exhibition “Die Welt als Labyrinth” held at the Musee d’Art Moderne et Contemporain (MAMCO) in Geneva from 28 February to 6 May 2018. The illustration is an untitled darboard collage from the Situationist exhibition Destruktion af RSG-6 at the gallery Exi, Odense, Denmark in 1963.

The title of the exhibition “refers to an unfulfilled project for a Situationist exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam in 1960, and shows up one of the questions that are raised by any presentation of these avant-garde movements: how to exhibit in a museum people who were systematically opposed to cultural institutions? Going further than a sabotaging of art through an unconventional register of forms and techniques, it was art as distinct social territory, governed by institutions, and determined by the market economy, that was in these movements’ crosshairs.” (MAMCO)
