With the phrase “Making as if Wondering: So What Is This?”, Eva Lootz (Vienna, 1940) alludes to a particular way of understanding the activity of art; namely, making, allowing a questioning of the world from scratch. Rooted in such an idea, this exhibition sets forth a panoramic journey through five decades of her career. Along with a selection of pieces Lootz recently donated to the Museo Reina Sofía, an ensemble of works is displayed for the first time, or reconstructed specifically for the occasion, with a strong focus on her drawingswhich, straddling exploration and text, constitute a kind of parallel writing that has accompanied her research and work, at different points, as a bona fide diary.
