DAn Perjovischi Recession
The Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi (born 1961) is one of the foremost draughtsmen on the international art scene. For the project Recession, which this book records, Perjovschi covered the two large wall spaces of the Ludwig Forum f¸r Internationale Kunst with a dense reference system, executed in white chalk on black ground, and diagramming a huge range of contemporary social, cultural and political phenomena in crude pictograms. This publication traces the project in a diaristic fashion and steers the readerís attention from broad views of the installation to detailed close-up. The fact that Perjovschi’s drawings will be erased after one year makes Recession an indispensable document.
