Discordo Ergo Sum

The present book is more than an exhibition catalogue; it is anextension of the exhibitions in book form, as the texts by Hélène Cixous, Catherine Wood, Beatriz Colomina, and Lina Streeruwitz offer in-depth discussions, analyses, and discursivizations of Renate Bertlmann’s works.

Readers are invited to continue their excursion through Renate Bertlmann’s thought and practice in the so-called sourcebook, which gives insight into the artist’s virtually inexhaustible archive. Notes, sketches, and other finds from countless diaries and sketchbooks, analytical material such as charts, association cards, sketches of unproduced projects, wishful booths in fictitious exhibitions, texts by authors that have been instrumental to Renate Bertlmann and her artistic work, her own texts about art, her poems, manifestoes, and musical scores get to the heart and brain of Bertlmann’s fifty-year cosmos.
