Hans Könings

The other story
Hans Köning takes everyday pictures out of the limitations of the autobiographical. He creates linocuts printed only in black-and-white from private and found photographs; the pre-photographic quality of these is an appropriation of the original snapshots.
The artist wants to understand what memory means, why certain images evoke something in us and produce that wonderful feeling of “let this moment last”. Or why other images – in a moment of recognition – bring back terrible memories Könings is a treasure hunter. He finds treasures for us in the depths of the past.
