Dieter Roth(1930-1998, swiss)

Dieter Roth, アーティストブックで有名です.初期のフルクサス運動の人たちと交流があったようですが、フルクサスというくくりだけにははまりきりません.のちにアイスランド人の奥さんと結婚してアイスランドに移ったようです..で、その後アイスランドのこんセプチャルアーティストに多大な影響を与えたらしいです.wikipediaが珍しく結構詳しく説明してるので、観てみてください。自分でのせておいて、自分できちんと読んでないですが・・

Dieter Roth (April 21, 1930 – June 5, 1998) was a Swiss-German artist best known for his artist’s books and for his sculptures and pictures made with rotting food stuffs [1]. He was also known as Dieter Rot and Diter Rot.

The dark undertone and furious, obsessive energy of his work ultimately separated him from many of the more lighthearted Fluxus artists. Perhaps despite himself, he was a fluent draftsman and expert printmaker, and his drawings and prints contained his wild energy within peculiarly virtuosic forms. Compared to the innumerable self-described artists of the last several decades who faked their way through his sort of work, Mr. Roth was the genuine item.[1].
