“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.

Jürgen Claus

Love, Art. An Autobiography in Twenty-One Encounters.
Jürgen Claus performs a number of roles – as a painter, critic, a theorist, a teacher and a media artist. This autobiography reveals a similar interdisciplinarity. It is a review of 40 years of creating art. As a result of his close connections with contemporaries like Peter Weibel, Otto Piene and Herbert Bayer, established over many years of communication, the artist’s oeuvre is developed through language, an important medium for Claus. His work always deals with the other person’s positions and Claus thus explains his way of seeing, creating and loving art using shared memories, conversations and diary entries. He himself calls it “lived contemporaneity”.
