“He is one of the pioneers of video art in Switzerland in the early 1970’s […] While
constantly questioning the media that he uses, and at times even takes as
subject matter, Jean Otth produces borderline works that test the observer and
provoke desire through covering-up, reframing, and shifting. The spectator is
thus invited to participate in sensitive, singular experiments in which the
figure is threatened with disappearance– where that which can be represented
is but a question.”
