Published on the occasion of Jason Dodge’s 2017 exhibition at the Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin.
From the press release “We are pleased to announce the final instalment of our exhibition series Porzellan und Vulkan with the exhibition Jason Dodge and Paul Thek. In the Schinkelklause several of Paul Thek’s major drawings will be displayed, while on the upper floor of the Schinkel Pavillon Dodge will present a sculptural installation. Dodges installative work and a program of poetry readings will draw conceptual reference to the work of Paul Thek and his engagement with rituals of diverse kinds.
The paralells between Thek and Dodge’s work in material and meaning are unmistakable. In addition to the visual exhibitions, the collaborations include readings by poets Dodge has published, and a workshop from Thek’s teaching notes for his 4D class at Cooper Union 1978-1981—all of these elements contribute to the interweaving between the artistic disciplines and embellish the notion of collaboration.”
