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.

Gereon Krebber

From blorp to Blobster. Projects in Gelsenkirchen 1995-2013

Gereon Krebber won the 2012 Kulturmeile (cultural mile) prize in Gelsenkirchen for his Blobster sculpture. The creative process behind the large-scale aluminium sculpture is described in this catalogue. Numerous illustrations document other actions in which the artist has been involved in the northern Ruhr region in Germany, including the Emscheramphibie (Emscher Amphibian), the large-scale installation Wolke zwei (Cloud Two) and the installation blorp. A number of current works add the finishing touches to this retrospective. In his essay, Peter Lodermeyer analyses “sculpture’s power to move”, a trait which characterises Krebber’s works.
