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.

Responses to Calder

Mobiles in Contemporary Art
The catalogue accompanying the exhibition of the same name in the Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven explores a highly topical issue, which is being rediscovered in an exciting way in contemporary art. An international generation of artists, including Martin Boyce, Jeppe Hein and Katja Strunz, redefine the seemingly non-ideological art form of the mobile, lending it an ironic or critical dimension. The current "Antworten auf Calder" (responses to Calder) vary. The artists amalgamate the mobile with the performing and applied arts, such as music, furniture design and performance, bringing the innocuous child's toy to "noisy" life.
