FRIDAY 17.7 from 4 to 7 pm: EXCLUSIVE PRESENTATION, SATURDAY 18.7 from 2 to 6 pm: PRIVATE VIEWING
Within the scope of our project FUTURE LAB we will present the renowned graphic designer and artist EIKE KÖNIG in the coming days. Eike König is the initiator of the multi-disciplinary design studio and creative playground HORT. For some years now he has been devoting more and more of his time to his personal work as a visual artist. His paintings, light installations and silk-screen prints are direct, but at the same time can be interpreted in many different ways. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?, TRUST, THE FUTURE, big slogans in Helvetica dominate Eike's paintings, but he always counteracts the great motifs of our time with the banal: NO WIFI, D'AMORE. Pop culture and existential philosophical questions are not contradictory. They always take place simultaneously in our life reality. Symbolically for this simultaneity, Eike König confronts the philosopher with the cartoon character from the Simpsons in his work HOMER VS HOMER and thus brings our existence between consumption, reflection, fear of the future and enthusiasm to the point.
