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.

Jochen Plogsties

Art Prize Leipziger Volkszeitung 2011
Using contemporary painting and his ‘back translations’ of reproductions of paintings, Jochen Plogsties raises awareness of processes and variances of artistic appropriation. Visual strategies are recondensed based on works originating throughout the whole of art history. Plogsties’ conceptual approach combines an appropriative attitude with a subjective gesture: with his selection and repetition of motifs, he renegotiates the level of abstraction and adaptation in each work.
In 2011, Jochen Plogsties was awarded the Kunstpreis der Leipziger Volkszeitung. This catalogue represents part of the award and covers in particular the artist’s latest works.
