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.

Kristina Bræin

Dilemma of politeness / Høflighetens dilemma / Dilemma der Höflichkeit
This first monograph on Norwegian artist Kristina Bræin covers works dating from 1998 to the current day and provides an in-depth look at the subtlety of her work.
Bræin deals with the space and materials of everyday life, opening up a dialogue between her own imagination and actual events occurring around her. Her installations are characterised by clear structures and the use of the simplest materials, which she presents with the outmost sensitivity and precision. Countless images and installation views are complemented by short texts written by the artist and by selected art historians.
