We could always find shelter there
from various kinds of intrusion.
Dieter Roth, Björn Roth
"Work Tables & Tischmatten"
Hauser and Wirth, New York
His son Björn recalls: 'In the last two decades of Dieter's life, I worked closely with him on art. The studio was at once a workplace and an apartment. There, things flowed together or became isolated. It was a kind of laboratory to search for beauty in nothing, and a workshop for assembling findings. Our studios were like safe houses. We could always find shelter there from various kinds of intrusion. In Mosfellsbær, Seydisfjördur, Hamburg, Basel, Unterterzen and Vienna. Different places and different ambiences, but with one common element: the work tables and Tischmatten.'
