DAN GRAHAM (1942–2022) Julia Scher

Dan Graham, 2018

Dan Graham, 2018

TEXTE ZUR KUNST was deeply saddened to learn of Dan Graham’s passing on February 19, 2022. Continuing our collected tributes to Graham, who was a vital figure in the history of TEXTE ZUR KUNST, is a text by the Cologne–based artist Julia Scher.

On a jet to New York for Dan’s funeral

There is no hackery in the reflections
You would become whole.
In spite of all the parts taken, blasted off, electro shocked, looted
Here is the peaceful coming together
No slave to the image.
In the family of images,
In the bounty of stars
In the mapping of time
He found a place for all of us
In a slide by, in a swirl of New York dust,
In a caravan of love,
In a messy row of sound,
He twirled, seeing from the inside all the outside has..…to offer.

Feb 25th
