The Observers

Without observers art does not take place. Only through contemplation, through perception, its existence begins. The viewer becomes an equal partner in the art-generating processes of the artist. In this sense: An exhibition without visitors did not take place. It is only completed with a visit and with an apprehension, sensation, classification of what has been seen on the basis of visitors’ own experiences. In the eye of the beholder, such a gathering of art is completed, it is charged with the divergent perspectives of the perceivers.
