you have left the pure White Cube of the Museum, to unfold one summer in the harsh brick architecture of the Northern shell of the castle Herrenchiemsee their effect. And not only when one enters the exhibition with paintings and sculptures from the Pinakothek der Moderne, shows how much different of contemporary art outside the Museum space. Also, if the path is not the goal here, it is an integral part of this presentation, which will be experienced under the title of "king's class" in the last summer of their fourth edition, and now in a slightly modified Form is shown. From the creators of the overall experience is not referred to, therefore, quite immodestly as the "silver bullet".
This has, of course, with the Shine to do full, in the years between 1878 and 1886 by king Ludwig II built a castle on the herreninsel in the Chiemsee. But with the of the state paintings collections in a new Film that will be shown in the framework of the tour, at the location where Warhol had his place. If you are missing any of these artists well, will soon be back in Munich found in the anniversary show, the ten year anniversary of the Museum Brandhorst, which opened in two weeks. The Film is now available to illustrate the close connection between the "king's class" and the art - and culture network in Bavaria. A network that stretches from the palaces of the Wittelsbach family to the art area in Munich.
As is the case with a "Making-Of" goes behind-the-Scenes. To see scenes from the preparation to the finished arrangement of the exhibition. Talks between the pioneers, the creators and artists of the "king's class" does not make it clear that culture is easy, but is actively created by all, make your way to the art, and, like Bernhard Maaz, Director-General of the Bavarian state painting collections, expresses it, to leave time and space. The experience that awaits the visitor, describes Franz, Duke of Bavaria at one point: "It will not be shown pictures, or artist, but it is shown in art."
And these art works in the atmosphere is often excellent, opens the eyes to a new perspective on what contemporary art is capable of. But sometimes she has no Chance against the architecture to arrive. Why try to bring the small format works from the Lebanon-born artist Etel Adnan in this framework? So beautiful, each of the abstract landscapes individually with the Outside corresponds, the paintings assert themselves against the Inside of the castle, in the serial hanging completely lost.
Better the second rediscovery: paintings from the Early and late works of the Japanese artist Kazuo Shiraga unsuccessful. On a rope hanging from the ceiling, the whole body as a brush, dipped Shiraga in the fifty years, for the first time in a flood of color that he brought on screen a of war experiences, as well as calligraphy and Zen meditations are equally inspired. Action Painting, the stand of the exhibition architecture.
Nice and cool, and businesslike in contrast, the of his country man On Kawara over five decades, designed word pictures in the "Today Series", the format like last year, in spite of their small nature a strong showing, and other than Adnan claim. Nice also the re-encounter with the cool-white "monuments" as well as the green glowing barrier of Dan Flavin. The latter knows how to say everywhere singular, unfolds here, but a special, space-consuming irritant, the Heiner Friedrich, the Flavin, the work in 1973 has been dedicated in the Film the king is understood to pass through.
Again a class for the Installation of flying objects by Hans-Jörg Georgi is in the apse-shaped room in Herrenchiemsee: outsider art from the "Atelier Goldstein" of the Lebenshilfe Frankfurt in the castle. Also, the fact that the graphically dense works by Günther Förg will be shown again, is beautiful, as are the metal sculptures of John Chamberlain, measure again, like dancers in a room. The cross-space of Arnulf Rainer's works solidifies on the face of the wall, sacral, and the single object but works well in the line of Sight to the next room, where the scent ends, more than four-Meter-high, honey-yellow, step-shaped floor sculptures "Without beginning and without end" by Wolfgang Laib curls, the compete barrier with the Flavin as a crowd favorite.
Up to the year 2013, the beginning of the "king's class". Your end is not in sight. However, after this summer break will be in preparation for the national exhibition in Bavaria, the 2021 stops at the same place in the Northern shell of Herrenchiemsee feed.
