Museum Folkwang presents a major exhibition of new works focussing on the contradictions between autonomous pictorial presence and the relation of painting to its situation in space: Works that go beyond traditional wall painting, break out of the picture frame, mark a transition into architectural space and thus lay the foundations for an experience of painting as space or as an object in space.
“Just what is not is possible” were the words sung by Blixa Bargeld in 1996 in a song by the band Einstürzende Neubauten (Collapsing New Buildings). The attitude and zeitgeist that shaped the 1990s forms the point of departure for a generation of artists aged 30 to 40 today.
