Dan Perjovschi Recession cover image

Dan Perjovschi


The Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi is one of the foremost draughtsmen on the international art scene.

For the project Recession (Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst, Aachen, 31 May 2008 – 26 April 2009), which this book records, Perjovschi covered the two large wall spaces of the Ludwig Forum für Internationale Kunst with a dense reference system, executed in white chalk on black ground, and diagramming a huge range of contemporary social, cultural and political phenomena in crude pictograms.

This publication traces the project in a diaristic fashion and steers the reader’s attention from broad views of the installation to detailed close-up. The fact that Perjovschi’s drawings were erased after one year makes Recession an indispensable document.
