This exhibition of around 80 works by the painter Eberhard Havekost is his first presentation on a larger scale in the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. The artist is already represented in the museums permanent collection by four works (which include groups of paintings) and has previously been shown here in two group exhibitions.Born in 1967 in Dresden, Havekost, whose cool painterly style is inspired by modern media, belongs to an internationally acclaimed group of younger artists who were born or studied in Dresden. Besides portraits and subjects from nature, architectural motifs and mobile homes cars, caravans or small aircraft are key themes in his paintings. Havekost often creates large series of paintings in which he explores the artistic relevance of individual motifs. The starting point for his paintings are images derived from the electronic and print media, but also photographs he takes himself, which are subsequently processed using complex computer technology. The exhibition is supported by VOLKSWAGEN BANK.

This exhibition is available for an international tour.
