Nine years after the exhibition deutschemalereizweitausenddrei (2003), which drew large audiences, in the summer of 2012 the Frankfurter Kunstverein is once again presenting an exhibition solely dedicated to painting. Under the title Painting of Uncertain Places the show includes the work of Tilo Baumgärtel (Leipzig), Susanne Kühn (Freiburg), Antje Majewski (Berlin), and Hannes Michanek (Frankfurt), four artists who are well aware of the fetish-like character that figurative painting is presumed to have—and of its ambivalent relationship to the art market, the reproach of it being decorative, and how readily it can be appropriated for purposes of representation.
