Franz Ackermann

Eine ortsspezifische, multimediale Installation

19.01. - 21.02.2010

Franz Ackermann, one of the most innovative painters over the past ten years, was born 1963 in Neumarkt St.Veit (Bavaria). The internationally renowned artist, who has had a professorship since 2001 at the State Academy of Visual Arts in Karlsruhe, repeatedly captivates us with expansive and extremely colorful paintings, drawings and installations, playfully bringing elements from globalized society together with the purer aspects of painting.

The parcourse of the installation, which Franz Ackermann first concretized while setting up the exhibition, is recapitulated in the catalogue, which will be published by Snoeck Verlag shortly after the opening and contain articles by Stephan Berg and Stefan Gronert in German and English for 19 Euro.
