With a Probability of Being Seen. Dorothee and Konrad Fischer. Archives of an attitude
Guided tour by Friedrich Meschede, curator of the exibition
Konrad Fischer (Düsseldorf, 1939-1996) had, in his different facets (artist, gallery owner and curator), a major influence on conceptual art in the 1960s and 1970s. On 29 October 1967, at Neubrückstrasse 12 in Düsseldorf, Konrad Fischer inaugurated a space for contemporary art in the narrow passage leading inside the property. All of the exhibitions were called “Bei Konrad Fischer” (At Konrad Fischer’s). He presented to the international avant-garde of his generation in Düsseldorf, primarily with the idea of developing specific projects for this unique and unusual space, and from the present-day perspective the programme of his exhibitions can be read as an encyclopaedia of the conceptual and Minimalist art of his time. Thus the exhibition will show works by Bruce Nauman, Carl André, Donald Judd, Dan Flavin, Sol LeWitt, Hanne Darboven, Richard Long, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Jan Dibbets, Gilbert and George, Eva Hesse, and artists from a younger generation like Thomas Schütte, Wolfgang Laib and Harald Klingelhöller.
In parallel, the MACBA Study and Documentation Centre is presenting material related with its projects as curator of exhibitions for the first time.
Inauguration: 13 May at 7:30 p.m.
Exhibition: until 25 April
