About Sichtbare Welt (Visible World)
In Visible World, the artists’ playfulness is tempered by a sense of nostalgia. In addition to conjuring up the same fantasies of escapism as the holiday brochures they evoke, the pictures on the monitors recall a time when politicians talked about global villages. None of the images is contentious; there is, as Arthur C. Danto has pointed out, ‘an extraordinary purity in the banal scenes [Fischli and Weiss] favor in their depictions, which are untouched by squalor or obscenity’ (Danto, ‘Play/Things’, in Peter Fischli and David Weiss: In a Restless World, p.97). - Rachel Taylor, the Tate
