I was introduced to Bernd Naber sometime in 1988 by a man who worked for Turske and Turske in Zurich. Bernd seemed like the epitome of a German artist – cool and eccentric and not too much of a mensch.
He was nice and we met on several occasions. I made a whole series of photographs which vaguely document his installation which Roberta Smith reviewed in ’89.
We have some art interests in common. I especially loved his ragged squares that he made and he was kind enough to give me one. Bernd is also known for the monochrome.
