REBUS 1843-2018

REBUS 1843-2018

In a rebus, the interplay between seeing, speaking and hearing produces hybrid signifiers that combine images and letters. In drawn form, the rebus already existed throughout the European medieval period. During the 19thcentury it reached its heyday as an entertaining picture puzzle that could often be found in French and German magazines. This exhibition aims to show how the rebus advanced to the present day, serving as a catalyst for form, content and technique in the visual arts. Through 30 exhibits the rebus is revealed as a subject of language, hearing and vision.
