excerpt of press release:
Every line is the axis of the world
In the late 1990s Stefan Germer wrote that art does not develop from novelty, only from thinking through history, its possibilities and conditions. Modernism’s formal creation vocabulary has undergone continuous changes in the course of the 20th and 21st centuries, growing into new directions and being linked with other discourses. In a time in which many principles of creation have exhausted themselves in rather redundant formalisms, the exhibition aims at examining the significance of the formal based on historical as well as contemporary positions.
