The work of Peter Friedl (Oberneukirchen, Austria, 1960) provides an incisive analysis of our political and cultural context, with a particular focus on the contradictions inherent to the practices and methods of contemporary art.

Peter Friedl: Work 1964–2006 was conceived as an atypical retrospective, which deliberately excluded some facets of his artistic production in order to highlight others, while at the same time setting up a fruitful dialogue between what could properly be called the artwork and the documentation that it generates.

The exhibition began chronologically with a series of drawings made by the artist during his childhood, which he later reused in works from the eighties. This was a way of reflecting on the conceptual limits of the genre, and the ways in which the process of museization affects the myths of authorship.

An exhibition catalogue – which included a wide selection of texts by Friedl – was published along with an artist’s book that was part of the project Theory of Justice.
