Horst Münch

The extensive oeuvre of Horst Münch includes painting, drawing, sculpture, photography and film. The artist constantly and openly questions all the modalities of representation, without any single artistic activity dominating. Texts and visual finds are directly integrated. By crossing medial boundaries with simple means, his works encourage the viewer to discard his or her aesthetic intentions: “[How] can I make a picture acceptable to me [...] if [...] I reject the composition, reject the space, reject the perspective [...] I reject painting itself [...] and still try to make a painting that works. Of course, there is also a desire in it, and in the end I have always denied myself that” (H. Münch, Kunstforum, 2014).
