GÜNTHER FÖRG

Twelve Lead Paintings 1989

Günther Förg’s beautifully produced, limited-edition book features twelve large-format lead paintings from 1989. The oversized trim size and high quality photographic reproductions convey an immediate and visceral impression of the paintings at scale. Like his contemporary and onetime collaborator Blinky Palermo, Förg dedicated himself to combining traditions of American Minimalism with a rigorous conceptual and even mystical underpinning. Förg’s thinly painted wooden surfaces and cloudy, layered palette have an enigmatic appeal, seemingly organic yet countered by the painterly application of his strict geometric figurations. In the words of fellow artist Max Weschler, “The special color of the lead […] oscillating between iridescent gray and blue, seems like a darkly threatening storm with its infinite gradations of gloom that coalesces in a fine play upon natural and artificial patinas.” Contributing essays by Britta Schröder and Max Wechsler.

Wandarbeiten | Wall Paintings

Max Wechsler

The first comprehensive catalog of German artist Gunther Förg’s 140 wall paintings is the focus of this substantial exhibition catalog for the Deichtorhallen exhibition, Hamburg (2015). When creating the wall works, Förg approached individual rooms with the intention of clarifying and adding rhythm to their spatial structure. Using vivid color and almost designlike elements Forg created a second set of canvases. As critic Max Wechsler wrote, “the layout of Förg’s space and image presentation merge quite naturally … structures come into play, atmospheres are evoked and feelings aroused; [and] a complex system of relationships reveals itself, which simultaneously break it all up and hold it together.” Throughout his career—from his early monochromatic works to architectural photographs and abstract paintings—Förg explored the legacy of the modernist aesthetic in a postmodern age. Facsimiles of Förg’s detailed wall drawing sketchbooks are reproduced for the first time.

FORT

Works

Lotte Dinse

Since 2006, the women’s artist collective FORT has been creating enigmatic and poetic spaces addressing contradictions in today’s consumer society. Five recent installations and performative interventions by the group—Alberta Niemann and Jenny Kropp, founded by Anna Jandt—provide an overview of the collective’s work since 2012 on the occasion of their exhibition at Kestnergesellschaft Hannover (2015). In works that often resemble readymades, FORT’s staged interventions and site-specific works critique social, political and economic events. In the installation Leck, they moved the complete interior of a bankrupt bank branch into the gallery, arranging the gutted and battered shelves as a reminder of one of the largest corporate bankruptcies in postwar Germany. An introductory essay by curator Lotte Dinse describes a variety of FORT’s projects and the ambiguities that arise when the original purpose of a place or object is altered by subtle intervention.

Franz Ackermann

Here’s an unusual exibition catalog: oversized, double-page reproductions in the landscape-format catalog give the viewer a sense of the explosive exuberance of color and the intelligent interplay of wall paintings and gallery installations that make Ackermann’s work so absorbing. Combining filigree drawings, brightly painted objects and photos in five exhibition rooms, this striking volume shows how this internationally acclaimed German artist carries his urbanistic spectrum to extremes, sampling individual images and virtuoso objects while alluding thematically to what is absent. Critic Stephan Berg lauds Ackermann’s work for “an exactness and exuberance … that stem from the search for the greatest proximate time and topicality.” A worthy document for a career-celebrating exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Bonn.
