The pieces of the first internationally themed group exhibition Chat Jet, shown on the occasion of the Künstlerhaus KM- re-opening, will be dedicated to current approaches in painting that might be labelled as painting beside itself, or outside of its original frame. Chat Jet. Painting ‹Beyond› The Medium and the artwork it presents deal with questions that have proven to be virulent: How does painting respond to the challenges of a mediatised society that is characterised by (mechanical) reproduction? What are the media, structures, and surfaces employed in painting nowadays? Have we reached a point where the image is fractured into fragments? And if so, how does it remain possible to define painting if it faces greater mediatic challenges and even enters into alliances with techniques that were formerly alien to painting?
