The image-based booklet produced with Björn Roth’s long-time friend and collaborator Bjarni Grímsson follows the installation of the exhibition ‘Roth Bar & Studio: Dieter Roth, Björn Roth, Oddur Roth’ at Hauser & Wirth in Zurich from March through May 2015. As both bar and studio were central concepts and locales for the work of Dieter Roth, the exhibition, as this publication reveals, brings together Roth Bar (Zürich) (2004 – 2015), The Studio of Dieter and Björn Roth, Ackermannshof, Basel (1995 – 2008), Somerset Cloakroom Painting (2014 – 2015) and Björn Roth’s Birdbook paintings (2005 – 2015). Through photographs, the reader sees the evolution of the collaborative pieces that change with every installation, bringing the flux of life into art. Further embodying this central idea, Roth Bar (Zürich) was host to numerous events during the exhibition in Zurich and was also installed at Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois during Art Basel 2015.
