The third CROSSWORDS exhibition recommences, and thus the surprising game between language and art, explored previously by JORDAN/SEYDOUX and LAGE EGAL, begins once more. Words and letters get mixed up, rejoined in poetry and playfully brought into new contexts. The exhibition displays an overview of positions from the early 1970s to the newest artistic practices. After all, words have always been there for us.

However, it is not only the texts, but also the audience which is set in motion here. The exhibition occurs simultaneously in two locations: at JORDAN/SEYDOUX in Mitte and at LAGE EGAL in Prenzlauer Berg, producing a rare collaboration between a gallery and an off-space. Two poles of a creative dialogue, rich in allusions, humour, irony and passion for the printed word. Between them, a space for further conversations is created.

JORDAN/SEYDOUX opens the dialogue in November with a salon-style exhibition, presenting drawings and paintings, together with limited editions, multiples and photographs, while LAGE EGAL awaits the darkest month of the year to show a selection of light and neon words/works in December.
