What do we actually see? How much reality is contained in the surface and depiction of things? Where do content (inhalt) and meaning exist? And how is it shaped into something different? Inhalt presents contemporary German painter Eberhard Havekost’s (b. 1967, Dresden) works during the last 10 years, focusing on the paintings he exhibited at KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2017). The complex interrelationship of the artist’s characteristically heterogenous works is conveyed in the layout of this slender fully illustrated hardcover survey catalog, which suggests a continuously expanding web. The starting points for Havekost’s paintings include his own photographs, advertisement and book illustrations, television, films and Internet images. As Havekost paints, he reflects on the function and role of pictures as well as their authenticity in relationship to the deluge of digital images absorbed today. An essay by the Basel-based art historian Invar-Torre Hollaus compliments extensive illustrations.
