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.

Ulrike Mohr

In her installations and cartographic works, Ulrike Mohr investigates definitions and arrangements. She often reveals standardisations that we take for granted, and adapts or infiltrates them. Her matter-of-fact approach does not aim to bring any system to collapse; instead she cleverly undermines a system and re-imagines it.
This process can refer to agreements within social groups or to natural laws. A stream is a stream even if two trees meet above it. This quotation, which is not dissimilar to a Japanese haiku, was taken from a definition of rivers and streams from the German armed forces and then changed. It is symptomatic of the work of Ulrike Mohr that here, as elsewhere, trees, waters, standardisations and hierarchical structures reside in her works.
