Aanant & Zoo is proud to announce the first solo exhibition of Luis Camnitzer in Berlin. For Luis Camnitzer art is, above all, an instrument for the expansion of knowledge. Since the sixties he has probed primal questions as to the social functions of art, the relationship between artist and observer as well as the multilayered network of language and power. It is essential to his method that the process of making sense occurs in tandem with the audience, where the work functions as the generator of communication to open mental space. An important working medium is the written word that in both Camnitzer’s artistic creations as well as in his theoretical writing strives to be as astute as it is enigmatic in its expression.
