Alex Silber - Heading into Time works 1971-2021
Alex Silber belongs to the first generation of Swiss artists to work with multiple media, installations, and performances. Since the beginning of his artistic practice, he has been fascinated by the medial aspect of images and texts. What is it that makes an image come to life? In a world marked by both an intoxication with images and iconoclasm, Silber has shaped his reflective approach to visual information into a distinctive voice of the contemporary world. The German title of this book, ‘In die Zeit gefallen’, does not imply that his oeuvre has taken a tumble down the rabbit hole of time. Rather, it is work on time, in time. It is the not-yet-fully-arrived, and that which is on its way.
