curated by Sabine Schaschl
Museum Haus Konstruktiv is the first Swiss institution to present the German artist Bernd Ribbeck (b. 1974 in Cologne, lives and works in Berlin).
Ribbeck’s formal frameworks have a linear geometric structure, a permeating radiant colorfulness, and an almost sacred appearance, which characterizes his oeuvre. Another feature is the consistent use of MDF boards as painting surfaces. These allow intensive work methods (such as rubbing off and scratching off layers of paint) and emphasize his works’ status as objects. This exhibition is realized in cooperation with the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum in Ludwigshafen am Rhein and brings together a representative selection of small-format panels over the last thirteen years.
The catalog, which includes an essay by Oliver Koerner von Gustorf and a conversation between Sabine Schaschl and Bernd Ribbeck, showcases a representative selection of more than 125 works from all periods in the artist’s oeuvre. Available in our shop.
