[Nettime-ro] André Cadere

Catalogue raisonné André Cadere (1934 – 1978)

The Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden currently presents a retrospective
exhibition of the work of André Cadere (1934–1978) from 27 October 2007 to
20 January 2008. The exhibition shows an overview of the œuvre of the
Rumanian artist who was a key figure of the Minimal and Conceptual Art
scene of the 1970s.

Cadere became well known in the 1970s with his "barres de bois rond" –
round painted wood bars of varying sizes – which were minimalist art
objects as well as instruments of artistic intervention. Handmade by the
artist, the bars were composed of painted cylindrical segments, whose
height corresponded to their radius. The individual units were assembled
following a mathematical system of permutation whose logical sequence was
disturbed by one error respectively.

On the occasion of the exhibition the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden is
preparing the catalogue raisonné with a complete list of the round bars of
wood which is due *to be published in January 2008*. *Any information
regarding the whereabouts or ownership of these works will be helpful.
Discretion is assured.
