Knastzeichnungen, Andreas Züst


Knastzeichnungen is a drawing study as a result of Swiss artist Andreas Züst's short prison stay in beginning of the 1980s. Even if there's little remaining evidence - the corresponding statutory register has been deleted - the drawings very clearly speak for themselves: the series, mostly A4 sheets, drawn on white paper with graphite, felt pen and possibly coal, show detailed drawings of the prison's interior fittings, frottages of different surface structures inside the cell, artistic-philosophical thoughts on the topic of punishment and sketched escape fantasies. It is a series which once again proves Züst to be an artist to whom, in his phenomenological work, a prison cell can be an insight.
