More Sky was initially published in 1970 as a loose-leaf ring binder, and now the 1973 edition is reproduced in facsimile here. The book may be considered the first compendium of Piene's work after the ZERO period in Germany.The title itself is a programmatic attempt to expand the arts. More sky - that was the dream of Otto Piene and his generation, to overcome at last the narrow confines of museums and instead to turn public space, the air and the sky into a site where art happens.Nature as a model for the arts: as was already the case in experiments within the Bauhaus tradition, Piene intended to execute his artistic works in the dimensions of earth, water and fire, and ultimately into technological media as well.The vibrant, colorful cover of his book, featuring a hand-painted title, the sun and a floating cloud, perfectly reflects this exhilarating utopia of a better world, closer to nature.Published on the occasion of the exhibition Otto Piene: More Sky at Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, 17 July - 31 August 2014.
German text only. The scarcity of ideas of a mass exhibition is a leap from quality to quantity and it constructs uselessness, a reconstruction of that which one would have liked to have at the outset of a career, namely a parade, a demonstration of the idea of autonomy, i.e. of the uncontrolled, uncurated, and unmanipulated. Instead it is what one gets when a career declines, what comes to the fore. A merging of the private into art, yet from there into the public, into the space you enter, the space you will find yourself in if you have come. Namely an uncurated exhibition with 'artist friends' (artist friends aren't friends without art, but artists with whom to symbiotize in a coexistence (to take a noun and to verbalize it)). But don't let yourself be put off by this toying with grammatical terms - they are meaningless and, as it were, ingenerative.
