    The largest exhibition of Dieter Roth’s work ever assembled—with some five hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, video works, films, and books—this retrospective brings together the German artist’s production from five decades in an attempt to establish him as one of the major figures in late-twentieth-century art. Organized by Schaulager director Theodora Vischer, the exhibition—accompanied by an extensive catalogue and an ambitious academic symposium—inaugurates an entirely new kind of institution (emphasizing research, storage, and archiving) in a part of Europe that already boasts numerous important museums.
