This conference will look at the relationship between literature and art, specifically visual artists who incorporate literary sources into their work. We are interested in how these interventions put pressure on the practice of art history, and how they provoke a reconsideration of methodologies of visual analysis. Thinking with, for example, the art of Elaine Reichek and Nancy Spero, we would also like to consider the place of citational practices within the broader context of postmodernism.

The exhibition focuses on the art works called Sing-Song-Signs by Warja Lavater and on her Folded Stories. The artist devised a picture language in her arists’ books William Tell (1962), Little Red Riding Hood (1960) and Leidenschaft und Vernunft (Sense and Sensibility, 1961) and went on to explore this technique further in various other media and artworks. She achieved international renown with William Tell, co-published by the Museum of Modern Art in 1962.
