About the product

The artists Peter Weibel and Loys Egg enjoy a longstanding friendship, which has resulted in many collaborative projects. Their “Bibliotheca Insomnia” dates from 1978-79.

Aiming to renew the expressiveness of traditional painting, they created a body of around 170 works on paper, a library that consists neither of pictures nor books, but of pictorial works. The principles of participation and interactivity play a crucial role, as the work by the one artist was augmented in different media and with text by the other, thus expanding the traditional formal visual language to create a peinture conceptuelle and peinture parole. “The game of representation dissolves into an art over art” (Peter Weibel).
