The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Anette Rose

Encyclopaedia of Manual Operations
The works of the artist Anette Rose examine non-verbal body language. She films faces and hands, facial expressions and movements of the hand synchronously. She creates a connection between these gestures of work and of expression: how do the hands and eyes affect diverse work processes? How are machines replacing work formerly done by hand? He links her observations of workshops, laboratories, operating theatres, museums and libraries and her process of questioning in installations, in her “encyclopaedia of operations”. This catalogue documents this encyclopaedia within the context of the museum, while montages of her research material provide insight into artistic research as part of art practice.
