Paying No Attention I Notice Everything: Robert Walser and the Visual Arts

Lukas Bärfuss, Elfriede Jelinek, Konrad Tobler

Ed. by Madeleine Schuppli, Thomas Schmutz, Aargauer Kunsthaus und Reto Sorg, Robert Walser-Zentrum

Robert Walser (1878–1956) is considered one of the most important writers of the modern age. His extensive work and life as an outsider have not just fascinated readers and writers all over the world but have increasingly captured the imagination of visual artists, demonstrating his inspiring force and the great variety of works it has given rise to.

He was strongly influenced by the art of his age, which reflects the same early 20th-century conflicts between the city and country and between tradition and modernism that are movingly described in his texts. This publication brings together historical and contemporary pictorial worlds in a way that yields new perspectives on different aspects of Robert Walser and his work.
