Curated by Franz Thalmair, "This Page Intentionally Left Blank" is the first in a series of exhibitions based on a wide-reaching research about writing. The original typewritten manuscript of Vilém Flusser's essay "The Gesture of Writing" provides its thematic and formalaesthetic foundation. "To write," says the philosopher about the basic requirements that should lead to a complete piece of writing, we need "a blank surface, for instance a white leaf of paper; an instrument which contains a matter that contrasts with the whiteness of the paper; the letters of the alphabet; the convention which gives a meaning to the letters; 'orthography' equals correct writing; the rules which order that language, what is called 'grammar;' an idea to be expressed in a language; and a motive to express that idea." Understanding the act of writing as a broad, culturally embedded gesture, the exhibition covers artistic, literary, curatorial and editorial fields of action and combines them.
