Solothurner Bahnhofplatz, 1970, is one of a series of monotype prints made with a revolutionary silkscreen process Roth had developed, employing 10 to 20 colors to create unique images. The idea behind these visually magical prints, and one which encapsulates Dieter's philosophy, is to practice art as life and life as art--each pull and each color results in an unknown outcome, a chance happening or a beautiful accident. A group of these monotype Swiss landscapes, Solothurner Bahnhofplatz, Berner Oberland and View of the Emme are featured in the booth. *There is a special presentation of the hand cut books in refabricated simple aluminum frames Dieter designed for the furniture shop, KULAN in Reykjavik in 1961. These books cross borders of classification as they require the viewer to be involved in the visual output. They were exhibited with Group Zero, Oeuvre d'Art Transformable at Gallery One in London, Galerie Loeb in Paris, Nouvelle Tendencies in Zagreb, Moving Movement in Amsterdam, Museum Haus Lange in Krefeld, and many other venues.
*New publication: diter rot collected landscapes, 2014 is available upon request.
