Do.-So.: 15-18 UhrVenue:
Kunsthalle Pfaffenhofen a. d. Ilm
With the exhibition "Labyrinth" Christoph Ruckhäberle
, professor of painting and printmaking at the Leipzig Academy of Fine Arts, brings the next generation of Leipzig artists to Pfaffenhofen.
Traditional elements such as narrative structure and pictorial space often recede into the background in favor of pictorial overlays and layering. The intentional contradictoriness and ambiguity of the works seem to be an expression of a fundamental skepticism towards images in times of digitalization and image overload.
In the exhibition, current works by students from the painting/printmaking class
are shown. The spectrum ranges from figurative and narrative to abstract works. Characteristic of the class is its exploration of graphics as a counterpart to painting, which is reflected in its art. The class also runs a publishing house called RISOTOP, in which it publishes and distributes artists' booklets. The booklets, printed on the class's own risograph, will also be on display at the Kunsthalle. Exhibiting will be about 30 students of Ruckhäberle's class from all semesters.Christoph Ruckhäberle
is well known in Pfaffenhofen - not least through his numerous exhibitions and his role as a founding member of the New Pfaffenhofen Art Association.
