The collaboration between Chillida and Heidegger in 1969 on an artist book entitled Die Kunst und der Raum, is the centre of this exhibition. While Heidegger inscribed his words on a set of lithographic stones, Chillida produced an accompanying series of “litho-collages” at a moment that critics identify as the apex of his graphic art. The exhibition exemplifies the space-oriented debates of this period with contemporaneous works by Anthony Caro, Sue Fuller, David Lamelas, Sol LeWitt, James Rosenquist, and Lee Ufan; alongside late works by key figures in Constructivism, Spatialism, and avant-garde sculpture, pointing towards preexisting space-related enquiries in modern art, which may have informed Heidegger’s work.
