‘Fachstelle’ consists of over 500 drawings by Michael Günzburger. All of them are sketches of other artworks which are held in the government collection of the canton of Zurich, a kind of virtuoso exercise wherein a single artistic idea is extracted from each work and depicted in black ink with a minimum number of strokes. Günzburger concentrates and reduces the works, like a single phrase or aphorism. Speed and consistency are captured in a sequence of economic gestures, yet at the expense of their specific characteristics, the material qualities that make them artworks and not signs. An inventory of the works on the canton letterhead points to the nature of bureaucracy.
