Press release

After studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich during the mid to late 1970s, Günther Förg started producing monochromatic wall paintings, which echoed colours found in their immediate surroundings. Thus integrating the environment into his practice from the very beginning, whereas architecture would eventually become one of the main components of his oeuvre and allow him to rethink not only the context of the exhibition space, but also the wider context of 20th century art.
