LINOCUT RELOADED

Claas Gutsche, Philipp Hennevogl, Thomas Kilpper, Sebastian Speckmann

6/3/2011 – 8/20/2011

The linoprint is experiencing a revival. Emerging artists are increasingly harnessing the linocut to explore contemporary themes, taking what was once simply considered a traditional graphic technique and elevating it as a legitimate form. Large format works, photo-realistic social commentary, installations and three-dimensional presentations are bringing new dimensions to the use of this medium.

The Berlin galleries Wagner + Partner and Hunchentoot are marking this development with a collaborative group exhibition. Through the work of the four artists Claas Gutsche, Philipp Hennevogl, Thomas Kilpper and Sebastian Speckmann from Berlin and Leipzig, the show examines the character of the linocut, the opportunity it offers the artist and how artists are reinvigorating the medium.

A booklet about the exhibition is published.

Artist talk with Ralf F. Hartmann (Kunstverein Nord): Jun 3 at 7 pm.
