Herta Müller has been working on her collages for more than 30 years. She cuts out words one by one from newspapers and magazines, sticking them onto postcard sized cards to create poems. At the Langmatt, she exhibits around 140 new artworks. For the first time, she has created works of art that relate to one another, forming a kind of lyrical autobiography. Artwork by artwork, one follows the lucid poetry and Müller’s ability to touch upon the unsayable. This incomparable world is small in format, but vast and powerful.
A publication incorporating the collages of Herta Müller will appear to accompany the exhibition, published by Hanser Verlag Munich.
