Hermann J. Painitz

Can art be objective? This is the question that Viennese concept artist Hermann J. Painitz (b. 1938) addresses. This monograph focuses particularly on the period between the 1960s and 1970s, providing a detailed picture of his extraordinary and highly topical work. This is characterised by his intention to create a type of art that is based on verifiable laws: art as language. Painitz deals with the philosophy of language and develops semiotic systems based on pictograms or objects. His work also includes several theoretical essays and poems.
