Even though Dieter Roth is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he saw himself mainly as a writer who saw his pictorial works as a way to earn money for writing. Accordingly, the use of language runs through the artist's work.

On the basis of significant works from different creative phases, the catalogue shows how text and image are inseparably linked at Roth and how the fields of activity literature and art influence each other in an unfinished cycle.
