Gerda Steiner & Jorg Lenzlinger: Totentanz


The painting known as the 'Basler Totentanz', which was destroyed in 1805, holds the position of an icon in the European tradition. Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger have engaged with the motif and significance of the danse macabre in their unusual work. The artist-duo invited artists from different fields to work together with them on a total installation in the form of a market. This publication constitutes an inspiring mix of deliberations, manifestations, and documents on the Totentanz / danse macabre and its importance for society.
