In autumn, we await you at the Kunsthaus with a large double exhibition:

14 October 2022 – 8 January 2023


Anna–Maria Bogner

Daniela Friebel

Frank Neubauer

Installation / Drawing / Photography

Exhibitions in interior spaces are always an examination of the walls and their relationship to the space. The artworks determine the perception of the walls, placed by curators or by the artists themselves. They set distances and proportions – orchestrate connections between the exhibits, determine the way they are viewed. But there are also works that do not want to be hung, that are not framed, but that refer decidedly to the rooms, as drawings, installations or photographs.

“THE WALLS” is about direct reference – about the walls as a design and working framework. The approaches of the three artists differ in terms of concepts, materials and finishes.

Anna-Maria Bogner (born 1984 in Tyrol) works with minimal means, mainly black rubber bands, with which she stages spatial situations that mark the character of the place and at the same time irritate the orientation within it. The exhibition space is transformed into a black and white labyrinth. Exploring the found architecture becomes difficult, spatial vision is put to the test. In Bogner’s work, the walls are the scaffolding for constituting a dynamic spatial experience.


Daniela Friebel (born 1975 in Berlin) works with photographic trompe l’oeils, with optical illusions. She creates photographs or generates new images from found archive photos. Friebel defines space as an image that shifts in the change of perspective of our moving observation. The photographs, which Friebel puts directly on the wall as wallpaper, suggest a real existence in interaction with the museum-like spatial constellation. The wallpaper trompe l’oeil as part of the wall changes the space and unsettles perception – where does the picture end, where does the space begin?


Frank Neubauer (born 1952 in Rhynem/Westphalia) devotes most of his art to drawing. For this exhibition, he has created large-scale graphite drawings for two walls. Drawing directly on the wall requires an interactive response to the already visible states of the picture. In contrast to painting, where the lightest areas are painted at the very end, drawing is always developed from light to dark. In the process, the picture is laid out over its entire format from the outset, only to be gradually condensed in the sense of the intention. After the exhibition, each drawing is destroyed, the original disappears forever.

Timm Rautert:

»Otl Aicher / Rotis«


©Timm Rautert

Otl Aicher, born in Ulm in 1922, was one of the most important designers of the 20th century and an influential figure in graphic design in the Federal Republic from the 1960s to the 1980s. 2022 marks the 100th anniversary of his birth.

This exhibition is dedicated to his international typographic success: the new typeface ROTIS, its typeface family and the seventeen typefaces in total. It is named after Aicher’s place of residence and work – a place from a different economic and political era: remote yet privileged, in deepest West Germany. All the pictures come from the archive of photographer Timm Rautert, who was connected to Aicher through joint projects and repeatedly visited Rotis between 1972 and Aicher’s accidental death in 1991.

Curated by Ute Eskildsen
