We’re looking forward to an evening with a great artistic format, inspiring conversations and interesting guests!
KAROL HUREC, *1948 born in Munich deals in his cross-genre artistic work with painting, installations and light objects.
With his minimalist abstract approach, the artist invents a visual language for the increasingly complex world in his latest series of works. He refers to physics, religion and philosophy in his work. Again and again he searches for the origin of the world, tries to understand and make visible light and shadow, the all and the nothing. Since 1970, Hurec has exhibited at regular intervals, especially in southern Germany, and through his great commitment to the Kronacher Kunstverein, he makes a valuable contribution to bringing art into the public sphere.
MARCK, born in Zurich in 1964, is a video and performance artist.
A special focus of his art is the thematization of human thought patterns. MARCK examines externally imposed as well as self-imposed boundaries and forces a reflection on our own views of social limitation and restriction, especially of the female gender role. MARCK sees his sculptures as excerpts from our mental cinema and leaves the completion of the narrative to each individual viewer themselves. Since 2007, MARCK’s video sculptures have been shown in more than 200 exhibitions worldwide and his works can be seen in numerous private as well as public collections, including the ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany, the Grande Finale Museum, France, the Dosan Artcenter, Korea, or the Artcenter Istanbul, Turkey.
