Imi Knoebel – the “eternally young old master of a radically non-representational painting style”.
Imi Knoebel (b. 1940) is regarded as a master of non-representational art. The monograph accompanying the retrospective in the Sammlung Goetz shows the entire spectrum of his creative artistic work from the 1960s until the present day. There is a particular focus on the connections between form and content within his works.
Imi Knoebel is one of the great German artists of the present day. He studied at the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf with Joseph Beuys and immediately won approval with his radically non-representational art. In his works he combines abstract painting with industrial materiality and a serial approach to his works. His oeuvre illustrated in this publication extends from black-and-white photographs to hardboard pictures, and from objects of cast concrete to acrylic paintings on aluminium.
