The spray-painted banana of Cologne artist Thomas Baumgärtel is known the world over as a quality seal and unofficial logo of the arts scene, emblazoned on the best museums and galleries and thus networking over 4,000 art spaces. In parallel with his spray-painting campaigns, which he also uses to courageously and humorously take a stand on political issues, Baumgärtel has created a painting oeuvre of which this is the first comprehensive survey.
Accompanying this catalogue a series of exhibitions will be mounted at various museums and galleries until mid-2009 showing works from the past ten years up to the present. Among the stations will be: Leopold Hoesch Museum Düren, Museum Goch, Kunsthalle Krems, Kunstsammlung Neubrandenburg, Kunsthalle Pirmasens, Siegerlandmuseum Siegen, Kunstverein Schwetzingen, Galerie RAAB Berlin, Galerie Martin Krebs Bern, Galerie Ricarda Fox Mülheim, Galerie Fischerplatz Ulm, Galerie Roland Aphold Basel, DavisKlemmGallery Mainz, Neue Kunst Gallery Karlsruhe and Galerie Pudelko Bonn.
