Stimulated by a desire to provoke new English-language scholarship on and inquiry into Franz Erhard Walther’s oeuvre, this colloquium takes the exhibition "Work As Action" as an opportunity to invite writers, curators, scholars, fellow artists, and the public to respond directly to the landmark 58-element work First Work Set—exhibited for the first time in its totality in the United States since 1969.
