Situation Kunst – for Max Imdahl

The Extension 2006

This book accompanies the opening of the Annexe of Art Situation (for Max Imdahl) in Bochum, Germany one of the most unusual art galleries created in recent years.

Based on Max Imdahl’s view that the analysis of a work of art should primarily focus on the viewing process and the structure of the picture, the art gallery was set up as a place where the visitor is exposed to sensory experiences in a totally different way.

By combining art objects from Asia and Africa with contemporary art, the Annexe shows a determined and single-minded method of presentation.

The works of the new collection are illustrated in a directory that comprises works by Gianni Colombo, Dan Flavin, Lee Ufan, François Morellet, Richard Serra, Arnulf Rainer, Ad Reinhardt, Robert Ryman, Dirk Reinartz and Jan J Schoonhoven as well as historic works from Africa and Asia.
