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.

Franziska Hufnagel

The Birds Cycle
Franziska Hufnagel’s artist book is dedicated to her cycle of bird acrylics. Crows and ravens are the main subjects roaming through the enigmatic narrative of her visual spaces. Culturally and historically charged by mythology, literature and film aesthetics since time immemorial, her protagonists inspire a whole host of associations. While Klaus Ferentschik’s surreal essays were written independently of the paintings, the images nevertheless respond to the verse. Words and images intertwine with one another to create a tense yet comic, bleak yet lively exchange.
