THOMAS KAMINSKY: Lenin and the Black Square

12 - 17 Feb 2016

The German painter Thomas Kaminsky (*1945), who has been living in Vienna for fifteen years, has been working for some time on a series of red woodcuts that combine famous life situations of Lenin with the Black Square of his contemporary Kasimir Malevich. The Martin Suppan Gallery is showing this series of prints and also a selection of his paintings.
One hundred years after the artistic hour "0" proclaimed by Malevich, Kaminsky calls for a reflection on contemporary art production. Where do its roots lie, do forms of modernism have a political statement?
Univ. Doz. Dr. Dieter Bogner and Prof. Dr. Raphael Rosenberg will lead a discussion with Thomas Kaminsky about painting today and its roots. Those interested in art are cordially invited to take part in the discussion.
