Klaus Liebig - Paintings from the 1970s & 1990s
26 April—29 June 2024
Opening: 26 April, 6—9 pm

Michael Janssen presents the works of German painter Klaus Liebig that reflect two crucial decades of his artistic trajectory — the 1970s and 1990s. Liebig, whose works are part of the MOMA collection, still remains relatively unknown to the international art community. In his enigmatic paintings, Liebig incorporates elements of collage and employs nonlinear structures to construct complex visual narratives. Liebig‘s artistic process is underpinned by his collection of images and texts from literature, ethnography, psychology, mythology, and anthropology. Carefully organized into approximately 200 folders, these materials form the painter‘s personal encyclopedia, providing him with inspiration for both the thematic content and formal elements of his work.
