To celebrate Imi Knoebel's exhibition 'dass die Geschichte zusammenbleibt' at the gallery, Kewenig is delighted to present this catalogue focusing on the 'Schattenräume' series, the first publication dedicated to this specific body of work.
An essay by Carsten Ahrens contextualizes the series in Knoebel's oeuvre thirty years after its conception, punctuated by many exhibition views as well as archive material - in a separate booklet - depicting all the 'Schattenräume' alongside major works that led the artist's path towards this unique spatial concept.
“This publication selects one moment from the great oeuvre of Imi Knoebel: 1989. A year of upheavals. The year that brought the fall of the Wall (...) Thirty years later, this publication is presenting 'dass die Geschichte zusammenbleibt – Schattenraum 6' in the context of this important group of works; it looks back at Knoebel’s early oeuvre and to works that give evidence of the artist’s concise realization of his pictorial concept.”- Carsten Ahrens
