PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Wolfgang Stehle


The works of the artist Wolfgang Stehle (*1965) deal with strategies of empowerment in the field of conflict between nature and civilization. Architectural forms made of wood exhibit puzzling, nature-based traces of dissolution. Supposed hunting trophies develop an abstract, geometrical life of their own. Ritual hunting scenes are juxtaposed in animated videos with technically distanced killing. The book presents the two-way relationship between opposites on a somber, but simultaneously vital specimen. At the same time, it is a documentation of the two-part exhibition at the Kunstverein Ingolstadt and the International Künstlerhaus Villa Concordia in Bamberg.
