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.

Dieter Kiessling

Arrested Movement
Media artist Dieter Kiessling’s new video portraits take centre stage in this catalogue. The artist portrays his subjects in an environment that is familiar to them and shows how they gradually move in small steps to make a 360-degree turn to face the camera, which is positioned permanently in the middle of the space.
A fascinating timeless and placeless interspace develops as the viewer engages constantly and directly with the subject. The sounds that are recorded in real time and the turning movement of the camera as it captures the environment drifting by in the film generate a sense of the peaceful passage of time in the expansion of a moment. This slowing down of the sense of time opens up an area in the viewer’s internal space for a very direct encounter with the world of the other person.
