With the exhibition title “wie weiss ist wissen die weisen“ (“how white is only the wise know”), a poem by the Concrete poet Eugen Gomringer, we draw on a theme of a show, held in 1999 at our former gallery in Hohenzollernstrasse, which attracted considerable attention. Particularly in the last few years, “white” has been chosen as the subject of numerous museum exhibitions to demonstrate how artists approach the color white with their different artistic resources. This convinced us to “reload” the topic after 20 years with 15 different artistic positions.
