In der Wohnung
Fred Fischli & Niels Olsen (Eds.)
The representation of domestic interiors has always been an important subject to Berlin-based German painter Albert Oehlen. In collaboration with Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen, Oehlen assembled an exhibition (2014) surveying approaches to the painting of interiors in contemporary art. His most recent artist book, In der Wohnung (In the Apartment), from STUDIOLO artist book series, is a record of his art historical journey. The book opens onto undulating black-and-white perspectival line drawings of landscapes sparsely populated with fragments of work by Richard Artschwager, Mike Kelley and Martin Kippenberger, among others, which the artist uses in his own paintings. Arriving at a building set into the landscape, we encounter a recent “Klebebild” by Oehlen—Pop art panels featuring Oehlen’s collages. Several close-ups of the final artworks are also shown on display. A survey of Oehlen’s work is being presented at the New Museum, NY, later this year.
