The exhibition will focus on Trantenroth’s panel paintings, which contain references to current politics, reflect societal problems, and motivate viewers to question the things around them.

In addition to his interest in illusionistic pictorial space and architectural elements, he explores changes in the nature of public space. Electronic media and the possibilities offered by telecommunications technology, particularly the internet, have led to the development of hybrid spaces where public and private, inside and outside, reality and virtuality intermingle in a fashion that recently still belonged to the world of science fiction. Today, many public places have become areas of potential endangerment – in the doubled sense of being threatening and being threatened. Trantenroth has thematised the mass-media ‘creation’ of the public in painterly manipulations of photos from newspapers and the internet, particularly those related to the themes of war and destruction.

Tim Trantenroth will join the opening.
A catalogue has been published on the occasion of the exhibition by Weidle Verlag, Bonn, Deutschland / Germany.
