From A to Z. Artists' Books in the Würth Collection
It may seem misleading to call all these exhibits by the name "book" since they appear in very diverse forms. In the Würth Collection there are books that have almost no words, others that do not or no longer have the shape of books, numerous specimens that present themselves as books and yet are not readable, and finally there are also some that follow the classic format of text plus picture. They all belong to the expansive genre of artists' books. Almost one hundred years ago, it was above all visual artists who discovered the medium book for themselves and who have been testing its conditions, limits and possibilities - in a process still ongoing today.
