Johann Groebner

Dienstag Abend von Ludwig Kittinger & Fernando Mesquita

    …There is a pictorial slang somewhere between Gerhard Richter, Luc Tuymans but more like that of Asger Jorn.1 Like Jorn – who preferred to “treat theoretical matter as an expressionist material” – Groebner’s work falls into a “disfiguring” tradition rather than a purely postmodern pastichist one. As with Guy Debord and Jorn’s collaborative efforts in screen printed over-view maps of Paris, Groebner attempts to rejig the instrumentalism of mapping imagery and state control.2
