Michael Biberstein X
Following a large retrospective of work by Michael Biberstein at Culturgest, Lisbon, this impressive catalogue offers an intimate examination of the Swiss painter’s life and work. The exhibition was organised around the two themes that always motivated his work: the analytic comprehension of space and the marking of place; and the specifically pictorial relationship with landscape via the act of painting. It shows how his oeuvre developed through distinct stages, yet its internal connectedness and particularly philosophical trajectory reveal links between modernist thinking on language, the potential of landscape to offer a political vision of the world, and the legacy of Romanticism.
