Michael Krebber

Beautiful and very scarce early Michael Krebber catalogue, published on the occasion of his solo exhibition at Galerie Gisela Capitain in Cologne, October – November, 1992.

Containing no text (beyond the title page), this catalogue reproduces a series of Krebber’s drawings from this period in colour and black and white.

Michael Krebber (born 1954, lives and works in Cologne) is currently considered to be one of the most emblematic personalities of the international contemporary art scene. Having had a major influence on the art scene in Cologne during the 80’s and 90’s and ever since, Michael Krebber has a conceptual approach to painting that he explores beyond all pictorial conventions. His practice is marked by ambivalence, subversion, intransigence, and a feigned body language. Krebber is a dandy painter.
Although he appears to be a discreet character, both perplexed and ambivalent about the very nature of his practice, he nevertheless remains an influential first-class smuggler into the world of art on both the theoretical and economic levels. The dialogue that he maintains with his students at the Staatliche Hochschule in Frankfurt, sets him up as a “literary character,” the implementer of his very own process, which has fascinated the emerging generation.
