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.

Sven Drühl

Artistic Research
The artistic work of Sven Drühl should be understood as conceptual painting, in the sense of a remix or a transformation that reinterprets – or rather, investigates artistically – historical and contemporary paintings (from Caspar David Friedrich though Ferdinand Hodler to Eberhard Havekost). His work belongs to the tradition of Serial Art and Appropriation Art and focuses on the experimental rearrangement of paintings.
A further progression of the concept is the large-format diptychs, triptychs and works on paper as well as neon-light art. The diptychs and triptychs, in particular, represent a continuation of the remix theme; they are created from separate painting fragments, and are quotations “once removed” – copies of copies – and at the same time, are also novel landscape collages. This monograph covers his work from 2001 to 2005.
