STANZFORM (Theme and Variations VI) is a series of artworks by Gottfried Jäger, created in 1965. This series, along with the Rasterfelder works from the same year, represents a transition in Jäger's art from object-related to free, non-object-related designs. The STANZFORM series features grid indents that take on their own form and meaning within the broader context of the Rasterfelder group.
Gottfried Jäger has been working in the field of abstract photography since the early 1960s. He sees photography not just as a medium to capture external conditions but as an artistic object in itself. Throughout his over fifty years of artistic practice, Jäger has become one of the most renowned names in German photographic art. In 2014, he received the Culture Prize of the German Society for Photography, which recognized both his artistic achievements and his contributions as a photo theorist and photo historian.
