Peter Friedl: Focus-Tour
Wed, 27 April 22, 5 pm
Barbara Campaner with Heike Bollig
Mit Wörtern gehen. Offener Schreibworkshop
Visitors of Peter Friedl’s exhibition are offered a glimpse into the artist’s private life, with artworks that have produced spaces for imagination and associations for over half a century. What role can language play there? How do image and word relate to each other?
The exhibition offers the framework for an exchange with oneself and others, writing impulses are stimulated by methods of creative writing.
Whether short texts, the beginnings of sentences or messages, the self-positioning in relation to the works of art, and the linking of associations are the source of inspiration for the Focus Tour.

‘I wish they´d never told me that my playground was just a parking lot’
Halfway into Peter Friedl´s monographic survey you come across a battlefield of deflated beasts. Fluffy kids costumes of reptiles and gorillas are scattered on the ground. Scraps of distant memories of a once unspoiled view onto the world full of possibilities. It´s a tragic sight. You finally woke up to a world that´s fully rationalized. Playgrounds that are fully standardized. 99 Problems in your mail account.
Transformation is one of the aspects that keeps reappearing in Peter Friedl´s works. So during this Focus Tour we will zoom in onto the transformative potential of things — you might join as a person, but leave as a giraffe again.
