Thomas Locher is an artist and curator with roots in the neo-conceptualism of the 1980s. His continual interest in language and its relation to writing can be placed at the interface of textuality and visuality; he has also always been interested in the subject and its relation to the object. In his work he has dealt with the German constitution and with human rights and their reality, their concepts, postulates and historical and ideological basis. He has also looked into peripheral economic issues by way of topics such as barter and gift, fetishism of commodity objects as well as terms such as loan, credibility or work.
