Roth worked in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, book-making, and graphic arts. His work does not fall easily into any category of contemporary art, while encompassing many of them. In the 1950s, he produced collages, fabric designs and jewellery, alongside kinetic art, text, and photographs. He participated in 'happenings.' In 1975 he founded the Zeitschrift für Alles. He was linked to the Fluxus Movement through his friend Daniel Spoerri.
