Axel Grünewald looks at the edges of the present. For more than five years, he has repeatedly traveled through the coastal regions of Morocco and southern Spain, to the continental border between Europe and Africa.

Emmanuel Bornstein

Emmanuel Bornstein’s main interest is (recent, German) history. The Holocaust in particular is a background motif for the ‘carnevalesque’ in Bornstein’s pictures, which appears both as over-the-top and controlled chaos. Bornstein employs the artistic media of the theatre and the circus in his grotesque, eerie, ‘world stage’. There are even auto-biographical elements, since Bornstein’s grandmother was a prisoner in Auschwitz. The investigation of the historical and human catastrophe of the 20th century by this young artist in the language of painting of today is a way of ensuring that it will not be forgotten.
