Robert Rotar

Zeigen. Verhüllen. Verschweigen.

The “magician of the spiral,” Robert Rotar (1926–1999), was a painter and photographer, and also produced art objects. He was friends with Joseph Beuys, Werner Heisenberg, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Alfred Schmela, and Günther Uecker. Throughout his lifetime, the spiral was the motif that defined his art. As a universal symbol of the infinite, as well as the cohesion of birth, life, and death, it is the key to his work. His aesthetic views of becoming and the passage of time, of temporality and artistic transformation are presented for the first time in this book, and examined from an art historical standpoint.
