Now On ViewTHROW AWAY YOUR TELEVISION (GROUP SHOW) 11 March - 15 April 2023
This group show is concerned with contemporary abstract painting and features four artists of its latest generation: Rachel von Morgenstern, Carolin Trunk, Selma van Panhuis, and Hannes Heinrich. Each one of them chose abstraction as their preferred mode of expression and work, yet together they form a diverse group with individually characteristic styles, questions, and concerns. Hannes Heinrich is based in Munich and studied at the AdbK in Munich in the class of Karin Kneffel. Rachel von Morgenstern lives and works in Frankfurt and holds a postgraduate degree from the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. Selma van Panhuis studied Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts in Den Haag before she moved to Leipzig where she earned a postgraduate degree in Fine Arts from the Hochschule für Grafik and Buchkunst; today she lives and works in Leipzig. Carolin Trunk studied fine art at Leipzig's art academy (HGB) and is based now in Offenbach. The show follows the question what form abstract non-representational art takes today after its thrilling, rich, and ideologically charged efforts and advancements throughout the 20th century.

In his exhibition Hard Days, Night, Johannes Listewnik presents a series of new works created in 2022. In his artistic work, Johannes Listewnik transfers reflection processes, which are usually captured in written language, into visual language. He gives space to his own thinking in painted and diversely crafted images. Starting from an object of investigation - be it floral still lifes or other forms of everyday and working poetics - he develops pictures with a pronounced dwelling character, which can be read as information containers for reflections on the object itself, on its art-historical contexts and on its present reproductions in painting. A graphic imagery, handwritten as well as painterly interventions, printing and reproduction techniques, and the embedding of foreign sources take on various roles, whose interpretation and reading by the viewer result in an open and fascinating interplay.
