Dieter Roth

An interesting new book titled Wait, Later This Will Be Nothing by Sarah Suzuki comes out this month from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

As I was preoccupied with everything around WWI in my art studies, I never heard of Dieter Roth before.  I love his Literature Sausage (Literaturwurst) made of ground-up books, and prints made with organic materials instead of inks are pretty smart too.

A nice, 16-page sample PDF preview is also included in MoMA's description.
