This publication presents the multifaceted oeuvre of Imi Knoebel, whose groundbreaking work with fundamental issues of form and color seem more current than ever.
The catalogue opens up new perspectives of selected phases, themes, and genres in Knoebel’s oeuvre. In chronological order, the book examines Knoebel’s time at the academy and his relationship to American art, as well as his exploration of photography, printmaking, serial works, and color; selected recent works are also included.
The book focuses on the artist’s works on paper, however, many recent paintings, dating from 2005 to 2009, are featured at the end of the catalogue, they provide some insight into the artist’s future tendencies. Below the headline ICH NICHT (“Not I“), Knoebel gives a decisive answer to Barnett Newman’s question Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow, and Blue?
