Artist Placement Group: Kunst als soziale Strategie
A shortcoming in the scholarship of Marcel Broodthaers is how seldom the research wanders very far from his primary sources and influences. Indeed, many interesting threads are more tangential to his practice.
For all of his fabled hermeticism, his work and thinking are shot through with questions around arts *place* and *use* in society, so it will be interesting to consider his oeuvre in relation to this exhibition and catalogue, produced by the Bonner Kunstverein in 1977, one year after Broodthaers' death.
