Kindred Painters


Exhibition in the Museum of the Nötscher Kreis
from May 11th to October 26th, 2014

Cornelius Kolig (born. 1942) sees himself as a concept- and installation artist, painter, graphic artist and sculptor and successor to the Nötscher Kreis. He has explored the topic of this close association in various artistic projects. Against the background of his examination of Anton Kolig’s (1886–1950) work, his paintings are juxtaposed for the first time in context with the work of his grandfather and his father Thaddäus Kolig (1911–1975) in the exhibition “Malverwandte” (Kindred artists). Proceeding from the work of Cornelius Kolig, the common reference points as well as the different artistic strategies are examined with regards to content and formal analogies in an exciting show with around 40 works. Three generations of this „artist family“ are presented, which are directly related to the Nötscher Kreis through Anton Kolig.

With the exhibition “Malverwandte”, the Museum of the Nötscher Kreis offers further insights into the relationships of Sebastian Isepp, Anton Kolig, Franz Wiegele and Anton Mahringer and once again shows their importance for subsequent generations of artists.

A catalog accompanies the exhibition.

Curator: Jutta M. Pichler in collaboration with Cornelius Kolig
