In a revisionist reassessment of classic modernism, Matthias Bitzer combines portraiture with geometric construction, often drawing on the formal vocabulary, plots, and intellectual history of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This survey documents the evolution of Bitzer's conceptions of time-space through four representative solo exhibitions. Sketches, photographs, poems, and references compiled by the artist round out this survey of Bitzer's extensive oeuvre. Individual catalogue sections illustrate the shows "Anatol Echo" at Almine Rech, Paris, "Amherst/Ether/Fields" at Francesca Minini, Milan, "Saturnine Swing" at Marianne Boesky, New York, and "The Collapse of Features" at KadelWillborn, Dusseldorf. With essays by Roland Nachtigaller, Timotheus Vermeulen, Ursula Strobele, and Augusta Gordon Joyce.
