Sammlung Goetz BASE 103

Gerwald Rockenschaub. re-entry (third ear edit)

In his complex oeuvre, Gerwald Rockenschaub uses the entire range of minimalistic and formalistic expressions. In Sammlung Goetz’s Base 103 exhibition space, the artist presents works from the collection as well as a new site-specific installation.

In contrast to radical Minimal Art, Rockenschaub (*1952) has never distanced himself from popular culture; rather, the artist has continually sought a cross-over between art, design, media and everyday life. He freed the minimalistic concept from its rigid rules and created an individual "funky minimalistic" style. In addition to developing an independent artistic position, Rockenschaub also works as an internationally successful DJ. Art and music are a fruitful symbiosis. His early Neo-Geo style paintings have exactly the format of LP covers. In Base 103, he continues the artistic dialogue surrounding the creative freedom of minimal art pursued in the exhibition FarbRaumKörper using other means and as an extension into the space.
