One of Dieter Roth’s most important books, Mundunculumfrom 1967, is about perception, vocabulary and the world. In one of the pictures in this book, Roth shows “how a small picture can have a big aspiration, and a big picture can have a small aspiration”. It’s a sketch that outlines the impact of seeing – in the mind of the beholder, big can have a relatively small impact, whereas small can have a bigger impact. The sketch is of magnificent simplicity, and that’s the crux of the matter.

We chose Dieter Roth’s drawing as a motto for our exhibition, which devotes itself to the small format. On show are drawings and objects from all artists represented by the gallery.
