Piece No. 46 + 110 + 41 + 69 + 78 + 86 + 124 in the Series of the Read-Work-Principle.
Arthur Køpcke
1965

Piece No. 46 + 110 + 41 + 69 + 78 + 86 + 124 in the Series of the Read-Work-Principle.

Arthur Køpcke was rooted in the German part of the Fluxus movement, which challenged customary ideas in the world of the arts. These artists worked with conceptual art, in which the idea and the artistic process were more important than the art as a physical concept.

In his “read-work pieces”, Køpcke confronts his public with a puzzle of the sort known from newspapers and weekly magazines. Only when the puzzle has been solved is the work of art finished. The picture is a collage painting, in which newspaper cuttings are inserted into the painted sections. The tasks are something of a tease and do not always have a meaningful solution.
