Painting Forever!

Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin

BubeDameKonigAss (JackQueenKingAce): Martin Eder, Michael Kunze, Anselm Reyle, Thomas Scheibitz

sintesi del comunicato stampa

Focusing on Martin Eder (b. 1968), Michael Kunze (b. 1961), Anselm Reyle (b. 1970) and Thomas Scheibitz (b. 1968), the exhibition BubeDameKonigAss (JackQueenKingAce) puts these four central positions of contemporary painting in Germany into a common context for the first time. Approximately 40 selected works from the past 15 years, what at first glance may appear to be fundamentally different artistic approaches are examined formally and contextually in dialogue. The four artists - who belong to the same generation, and whose oeuvres are often characterized by similar influences and connections - have created extremely stringent, but also seemingly contradictory works. Strong contrasts in form, coloration and motifs, as well as in temporality, reveal themselves to be inherent in the works when they are viewed together. An individual interpretation of the medium of painting (which has been repeatedly written off as dead since the onset of Modernism) is reflected in the works of Eder, Kunze, Reyle and Scheibitz in numerous programmatic and formal considerations. Painting Forever! - a cooperation of the Berlinische Galerie, the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, the KW Institute for Contemporary Art and the Nationalgalerie - Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. Opening as part of the Berlin Art Week.
