Saturday 31 October 1998 to Sunday 13 December 1998
Jochen Klein (1967-1997) paints landscapes that take the viewer on a cruise filled with visual seduction and polymorphous adventures. Klein shows us an alternative present that is not threatening. His paintings are a map that we can play with in order to imagine ourselves somewhere else. One cannot simply look at Jochen Klein’s paintings because one always and already looks out of them.
In relation to this exhibition, CUBITT presents a billboard project by Group Material. Jochen Klein was a member of Group Material from 1994-96.
The exhibition was accompanied by a book: Jochen Klein; edited by Wolfgang Tillmans, with contributions by Doug Ashford and Helmut Draxler published by Walter Konig, Cologne. The book is available during the exhibition for £12.
