Tetsumi Kudo

Bottled humanism, colored neon contaminations, tattered flaps of skin, and limp penises bring humanist self-assurance crashing to the ground. What appears as poison or chemical devastation is in fact an appeal to understand metamorphosis as a state of being. Over a period of three decades, from the mid-1950s to the late 1980s, the Japanese artist Tetsumi Kudo created a consistent body of work that serves as a model for contemporary conceptual approaches of Posthumanism and the New Materialism. The catalogue brings together contributions by artists and theorists and documents Kudo’s comprehensive oeuvre in work and archive images as well as exhibition views from the retrospective at the Fridericianum (2016).

Frank Walter
A Retrospective

There is no typical Frank Walter. His painterly spectrum is free and wide. His way of seeing is his own. His oeuvre seems to stand in opposition to the permanent ascriptions he was subjected to throughout his lifetime, with respect to race and nation. His cosmological paintings radiate transcendentally, his abstract works are systematic, his figurative ones captivating by virtue of their individuality, and his landscapes come into their own in clear abstraction. His works are of exceptional clarity and directness. Their concentrated quality, which can also be traced back to their size, opens unobstructed access.

The work of the native Antiguan and Barbudan artist Frank Walter (1926–2009) encompasses numerous paintings, drawings, sculptures, and writings that will be on view in a museum for the first time.
