Ohne Titel (Concrete Poetry)
Materials: ink, marker on paper
Collection: Estate Bernd Lohaus.
Although not especially known to the wider public for this genre of expression, Bernd Lohaus did indeed delve into the world of concrete poetry. In 1965-66 he focused on these more fragile works clearly inspired by language. Using markers, pencil, typewriter and carbon paper, he applied repetitions of words and signs onto paper. Ordinary writing paper, but also pieces of envelopes and even his father's business cards (the jurist August Lohaus) served as his surfaces. In this series we recognize 'HIC ET NUNC' (here and now), but also interconnections of the letter 'o'. The overall ambience is one of humour and the absurd.
