Accompanying his painterly practice Jack Whitten wrote numerous texts in which he reflected on artistic as well as socio-political issues. In a performative reading, texts by Jack Whitten including notes from his studio diary and essays will be recited in English and German. The selection offers personal insights into the thinking of a painter who saw abstraction as an fundamental approach for understanding reality.

Recited by Berlin based actor Tyron Ricketts. As musician and producer he supports diversity and an alternative perspective on the eurocentric narrative in the arts and media images.
