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.


The catalogue accompanying this exhibition deals with the ever-decreasing number of boundaries between nature and artificiality. Using a variety of media (video, sculpture, drawing, photography and painting), five international artists explore the phenomenon of life and its technical manipulability.
The hope for cures for fatal diseases is countered by bleak and fearful visions of a world shaped by bio-industry. The latest developments in biotechnology and gene technology in particular have permanently changed our view of the natural basis of life.

Artists (among others):
Pauline Curier Jardin, Bea Emsbach, Simone Haack, Gustavo Lacerda, Iris Schieferstein
