Wir / Noi
Photographer Andreas Bertagnoll’s images are marked by imperceptible alienations. They don’t betray fully what they’re all about, refusing to do more than hint at something that goes beyond the image, something that is denied to the viewer. He documents everyday life there without imposing any value judgments or facile interpretations.
Homeland presents various ways of approaching the concept of home. How private must home be? Does »taking it public« make a mockery of this emotion? Or is there indeed something like a collective, world-wide feeling of home?
Take your Time
»Take your time.« With this programmatic request, Arvid Boecker encourages visitors to unhurriedly explore the interplay between his sculptural and painted works against the architecture of the Städtische Galerie Neunkirchen.
back to black
Black in Current Painting
back to black presents an intriguing variety of works as a way of examining the significance of black in recent painting. Black as a color in its own right only came into acceptance again in the early 20th century amongst artists such as Matisse, and was then rehabilitated in the postwar period by Rauschenberg, Rothko and Stella.
Bilder aus Licht
Zum Bildbegriff von James Turrell im Kontext der amerikanischen Kunst nach 1945
The Californian light artist James Turrell (*1943) founded a new, spatially defined light art in the 1960s. In it, light appears as an autonomous means of composition, separately from its source. In this way, he created pictures made for the first time of pure light. In this volume, the art historian Ulrike Gehring examines the various qualities of light in American art after 1945.
