About Painting

Positions from the Wemhöner Collection

The fourth volume in a series of publications on the Wemhöner Collection spans the period from the 1940s to the present day. Whether the works bear the hallmarks of Minimalism, Abstraction, informal or figurative painting, or the Italian Transavanguardia, and whether their creators are the greats of art history, regionally known artists or representatives of the current international art scene, collector Heiner Wemhöner associates each work with encounters and conversations that often stretch quite some way back in time. His collection, parts of which are often displayed in exhibitions, now also includes drawings, photographs, films, sculptures and installations. Yet this has in no way changed his fascination with painting – with the authenticity of the brushstroke, the sweep of the blade or the moirés of acid. While the accompanying essays in this book focus in particular on the production aesthetics of the individual works, the collection’s momentum and spirit resonates in a curated series of plates that also includes works crossing the boundaries between media. ABOUT PAINTING not only documents a collection; it is a book about painting.

Please notice: The book will be published in April 2016.
