Drawing a Tension

In 2008 Jürgen Bock was invited to curate a show of work from the Deutsche Bank art collection and its then 53,000 art pieces. He came up with a selection of 134 works by 28 artists for the show, which took place at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.

The catalogue gives priority to the individual artistic approaches and contextualises the selected works. According to the designer, Arne Kaiser, ‘it translates the exhibition into another medium, part catalogue, part lexicon of a collective theme.’


The publication comprises texts by Jürgen Bock, Gertrud Sandqvist and José Bragança de Miranda and was published by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and Deutsche Bank Art. An interview with Jürgen about the show can be found here. I copy-edited and proofed the English texts.
