Whether he worked in moving images, painting, drawing, or installations, what always lay at the heart of Jean Otth's art was the issue of representation itself – or its absence. Though he used new technologies to think through how images are produced, his oeuvre is rooted in classical art history: he was fascinated by Plato's allegory of the cave, for instance, which shaped his approach to a greater extent than his devotion to a given medium. The exhibition takes as its starting point the major issues he explored throughout his oeuvre.
