EXHIBITION: ANDREAS GURSKY - NOT ABSTRACT
»The exhibition Andreas Gursky – not abstract provides an initial look at new works by the renowned Düsseldorf photoartist, all of them created especially for this project and presented here alongside selected earlier works.
In his recent works, Andreas Gursky explores the abstract potential of the photographic medium. From early in his career, abstraction has served Gursky as a resource for compositional freedom, and in his view, establishes the closest possible proximity between painting and photography. Nevertheless, explaines the artist, photography is never completely abstract: it is always bound up with the object. The exhibition at the K20 features the diverse forms of abstraction that have appeared in this artist's oeuvre.
Accompanying the photographic works is a minimalist sound installation by the Canadian producer and DJ Richie Hawtin. Concept 1 was published by Hawtin in 1996 as a series of minimalistic tracks that pursue ideas concerning rhythmic abstractness in music.«

3 FRAGEN AN ANDREAS GURSKY
»Die Ausstellung Andreas Gursky – nicht abstrakt im K20 verwirklicht eine Idee, die der renommierte Fotokünstler seit längerer Zeit im engen Austausch mit der Direktorin der Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Marion Ackermann, diskutiert hat. Im Ergebnis ist es eine sehr persönliche Ausstellung geworden, die eindrucksvoll die Fragen nach dem Abstraktionsvermögen des Mediums Fotografie stellt.
Zur Vorbereitung auf das Projekt trafen sich Marion Ackermann und Andreas Gursky im März 2016 zu einem langen Gespräch über die Fotografie, die Abstraktion, die Musik und die Arbeitsweise des Künstlers.«
Für #32, das Online-Magazin der Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, wurden drei Fragen und ihre Antworten ausgewählt und in der Rubrik Making of zusammengestellt:
