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.

Jean-Yves Klein

In the summer of 2008, Jean Yves Klein won a competition to decorate the Gendarmerie, a new and important meeting point in the heart of Berlin. As part of this project, the artist created a colour wooden relief measuring 5 x 14 m.
In situ since May 2009, this impressive work evokes the sensuality, passion and precipices of Dionysian celebrations and leaves no doubt as to their everlasting allure. Klein’s vibrant panorama is also a reflection of mythological and art-historical quotations. Diego Velazquez’ “Los Borrachos or The Triumph of Bacchus” from 1628 is of central importance. This catalogue ushers in these contexts but is above all a diary and album of an artistic process and the ideas and distortions that it entails, right up to its irrevocable conclusion.
