Dieter Roth, also known as Dieter Rot and Diter Rot, was a German-born Icelandic artist most known for his artist’s books, sculptures, and installations, although he worked in drawing and painting as well. He worked with the Concrete, Fluxus, Op, and Maximalism art movements, though he was not fully committed to any specific movement.

Dieter Roth
Much of Dieter Roth's early career was spent in Iceland, which was isolated from most of the European modernist movements, so Dieter Roth had the opportunity to develop a unique aesthetic.

A key work is Literaturwurst (Literature Sausage, 1961 – 1964), which was made by processing and binding published text as sausage, and affixing the cover of the book to the sausage wrapper. These sausage books were the forerunner to later pieces that used food as the medium, often rotting food. The most we Read More
