“Things can only be diverse and should be diverse,” wrote Donald Judd in 1964 about the art scene in New York, and hence rejected a one-dimensional ordering of art history in favor of an open encounter with works of art.

Peter Knoch

Hotel garni
Hotel garni is the first monograph on the work of Peter Knoch (*1961). All the important groups of works of the past twenty-five years—including installations, ceramics, woodcuts, and paintings—are lavishly presented in almost filmic sequences of pictures. The book shows a poetic oeuvre that deals with existential questions of loneliness, illness, and death. In its accompanying texts, Susanne Prinz and Isabelle Meiffert elaborate on recurring motifs and, in a conversation with Max Dax, Knoch tells of his creative process between Berghain, childhood myths, and the chansons he writes.
