NONECONTEMPORARY

22rd to 24th February 2019 // »NONECONTEMPORARY«
In February Ray Moore and me threw this exhibition at Gallery WELTRAUM in Munich. Thanks a lot to everyone who was there and to curator Rudolf Maximilian Becker for having us!

»Kunst hat die Kraft Grenzen zu sprengen – auch die Grenzen der Zeit. Deshalb ist Kunst im besten Fall weder zeitgenössisch noch epochentypisch, sondern epochenübergreifend und allgegenwärtig. In der Ausstellung »NONECONTEMPORARY« setzen sich Ray Moore alias The Poet that Paints (Mississippi/München www.raymoore.de) und Falk v. Schönfels alias fluctibus mit der Zeitlosigkeit von Kunst auseinander. Ausgangspunkt ist ihr Interesse für Figuren, Charaktere, Wörter und Poesie – der Weg, den sie beschreiten, ist die Transplantation von alten Elementen in neue Umgebungen. In einem »serious play« (Ray Moore) verbinden sie mit Humor und Ironie alte, bereits bekannte Inhalte und Aktuelles zu einem Narrativ, das nicht zeitgenössisch, sondern epochenübergreifend ist.«

»EAT POETRY« @Alt Giesing

2nd Dezember 2018 // Luckily the guys from »EAT POETRY – food & art a la carte« asked me to show some artworks at this amazing New York-style Bar »Alt Giesing« in Munich for their poetry/food/art-event. The lighting conditions were a bit challenging but it was nice rocking such a beautiful place for a while. Organizers and guests seemed to have liked it, so my pictures stayed there till the 6th of February 2019. Lots of thanks to Basty from »EAT POETRY« and special thanks to Chris from »Alt Giesing«, it was fun working with you!

Gallery Weltraum – Joint Venture

14th to 22th of September 2018 // Just in time! The new series with 72 drawings and one acrylic painting was complete and also my book with poetry and illustration was on the way. So we grabbed the friendly invitation from Rudolf Maximilian Becker to throw an exhibition at the marvellous gallery Weltraum again. Anna von Bergmann showed her wonderful jewelry (with a special fluctibus edition) and her daughter had an extra exhibition with her talented photos. Apart from that on the opening and on the finissage we had the opportunity to experience two extraordinary performances by two inimitable personalities. Andreas Ohrenschall delighted us with „Ohrenschalls Mythophagen – Peformance Nr 5“ and Nikolai Vogel exhilarated us with „Die Abhängung der Kunst / Taking down the art“. Thanks so much to all involved parties, everyone who helped and everyone who came along and especially to Daniel Schvarcz for the photos and Rudolf Maximilian Becker for having us!

It comes by the eerie title »Über das letztendlich unvermeidbare Zerwürfnis rationaler Wesen mit den immer häufiger kursierenden, klammheimlichen, nicht mehr im geringsten Ansatz beurteilbaren, rein gefühlten, nicht erdachten Weltanschauungen« [»About the ultimately unavoidable discord of rational beings with the more and more frequently circulating, clandestine, purely in the least approach assessable, purely felt, not conceived world-views« google.translate]. On 150 pages you can navigate through illustrations from the exhibition »Wahnsinn™ und Methode®« [Madness™ & Method™] and German poetry I mostly wrote on the smartphone while traveling.

150 Pages // ISBN: 978-3-945296-66-0 // Kastner Verlag 2018 // Size 10 x 15 x 1 cm // 141 g

ZEITFORMEN

20th of July to 9th of September 2018 // Many thanks to curator Rudolf Maximilian Becker for inviting me to the Groupexhibition “ZEITFORMEN” at the beautiful little Schloßpavillon in Ismaning. Special thanks to Gisela Hesse for making this very well looking exhibition possible in her premisses. Thanks to all the other artist for having a good time. In the right wing of the Pavillon there was the photography “Light divided by waters” [Real photoprint on forexboard, 2 mm acryl glass with shadow gap frame, (Black Oak); 184,4 x 124,4 cm] from my “Obscurity newfound”-series perfectly matching with the reflecting chandeliers.
