People who have saved this event:


The painter Eberhard Havekost, who was born in 1967 in Dresden, is among the most important German artists of his generation.


The starting point for his painting is his own or found photographs, which he digitally edits and then uses as templates for his paintings. Havekost thus makes use of the latest advances in digital photo editing, while also dealing with the effects of the endless production of images through digital media. With an impressive radicalness, the artist questions the authenticity of images: What is it that we see? How much reality is in the surface of things and their likenesses?

The exhibition Inhalt concentrates on Eberhard Havekost’s work from the past ten years with a focus on new series of works that will be shown at the KINDL for the first time. After important solo exhibitions at venues including the Museum Küppersmühle Duisburg (2013), the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt (2010), and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (2006), Inhalt is the first institutional exhibition by Eberhard Havekost in Berlin.
