A group exhibition exploring text-based art and set across two Berlin locations:
Jordan/Seydoux — Drawings & Prints | LAGE EGAL Raum für aktuelle Kunst
Curated by Pierre Granoux & Jordan/Seydoux

CROSSWORDS 2 explores the written word visually. From anagrams and palindromes to the playful use of text in new contexts. BORIS+NATASCHA showcase four works from their ongoing project ORACLE, in which they ‘channel’ messages from the (in)famous Dead, via their tombstones – beginning with the Godfather of frottage, Max Ernst, followed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Egon Schiele and Oscar Wilde.
