English Summary

The Kunsthalle Tübingen is showing the first „institutional“ exhibition of the Rumanian-German artist Daniel Knorr. Knorr became known through his spectacular contrbutions to the last Biennale Venezia and Documenta Kassel/ Athens. The director of the Kunsthalle Dr.Nicole Fritz curated this important show herself. Knorrs polyurethan, bright color sculptures dominate. The sprayed canvasses in a central room result from a spectacular performance at the Basel art fair. A big red car wash was ‚abused‘ as huge air brush and sprayed layers of bright colors on car-models constructed from canvasses in various shape and size. This belongs certainly to the philosophy of the 51 years old artist, who never ever wants to be boring. How successful he realizes this program shows the Tübingen exhibit and the very hip catalogue.
