Explosive Exuberance of Colour

The predominantly double-paged photographs in this landscape format catalogue admirably reproduce both the explosive exuberance of colour, as well as the intelligent interplay of the wall paintings, which have been combined with filigree drawings and brightly painted objects in five alternating exhibition rooms. In these wall paintings, Franz Ackermann carries to extremes – and in virtuoso manner – the methodological sampling of his individual images and raster garnered on his travels. This exhibition has already been celebrated as the pinnacle of an illustrious career, to which this recent book most impressively attests.
