Exhibition text

Black is “the darkest of the dark”; the most original color and the loneliest. 

There's no black in the rainbow.

Nevertheless, the nuances, facets and connotations of the color phenomenon black are almost infinite.

It is not by chance that “black art” once flourished.

Recently, it has experienced a remarkable renaissance in contemporary art.

Does black exist at all or is it merely a construction of the brain?

Is it a “nothing without is it a nothings out possibility” or is everything potentially hidden in black?

The artist in the exhibition explore a complex field of differences in black.

What black is and what it appears to be can be very different.

Because “what appears black to us it's only a hunch something filtered, the Sud.

What we think is black is a bluff,” Franzobel writes, thus emphasizing the incomprehensible in the perception of black, but also the frightening, the other.

It is better to see in color, to live in light.

Doubt, darkness, holes, magic, the night, the hidden and human consciousness are hidden in black.

The German philosopher Theodor W Adorno wrote in his “Aesthetic Theory” that radical art is “black and it's basic color”, as dark as the reality it is meant to withstand.

In the current Pandemic apocalypse, fear, loneliness, isolation become commodities.

Time hurts, makes one pensive, thin-skinned and melancholic; already in melancholy there is black bile.

A new sensibility for black has awakened.

The exhibition series “Graphical Cabinet” brings together works by over thirty artists in three episodes.

Over the course of the year, the media of prints and drawings are explored as relevant to contemporary art and current thinking.
