David Horvitz & Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt: For Ruth, the Sky in Los Angeles / For Ruth, the Wind to You
Edited by Kathleen Reinhardt, Albertinum Dresden. Text by Zanna Gilbert, Jesi Khadivi, Sven Spieker, Kathleen Reinhardt, Hilke Wagner.


American multimedia artist David Horvitz visited visual poet and mail artist Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt in her native Germany while conducting research in 2014. There, Horvitz discovered her archives of “typewritings,” graphic works that Wolf-Rehfeldt had used for mail art and sent across the globe from her studio in East Berlin in the 1970s. Later, Horvitz invited Wolf-Rehfeldt to use a disposable camera to record images of her house and garden and, in return, he photographed his studio in Los Angeles.

These snapshots and dialogues are presented along with Horvitz’s text-based watercolors—such as For Ruth, the sky in los angeles and For Ruth, the wind to you, which were original sent as mail art. Together they constitute a delightful dialogue.
