Dieter Roth, «Seyðisfjörður Slides – Every View of a Town, 1988 – 1995»

Saturday, 22.06.2019 – Sunday, 01.09.2019

The Swiss artist Dieter Roth lived in the small town of Seyðisfjörður, on the east coast of Iceland during the latter period of his life. During this time he created a slide installation, which was a form of portrait of the town. For 2019 Skaftfell will re-stage this work in the building where it was first shown, and consider the relationship between its local relevance and its place within a wider art historical context, as well as exploring Roth's legacy within present day contemporary art.
