It is not an accident that Herta Müller creates visual works composed of words - the artist is a Romanian-born German writer who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2009 for her works revealing the harshness of life in Romania under the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceaușescu. The award cited Müller for depicting “the landscape of the dispossessed” with “the concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose.” The exhibition features series of the artist's collages composed by Müller as word and image cutouts. The color and composition play an important role in her visual poetry. She creates unique visual metaphors depicting the surrounding reality. The exhibition is part of the Mocak series devoted to artists whose work is multifaceted.
