REITER | Berlin prospect and 401contemporary are showing an intergenerational exhibition with works by Adolf Luther / Alexei Kostroma / Claus Georg Stabe / Carsten Goering, offering them a platform to discover a connectedness across the boundaries of time.


Since the 1950s the ZERO-artist Adolf Luther’s art was a reaction to the crisis in the world of painting, as well as to the wavering image of reality brought about by technology and scientific innovation. Luther (1912-1990) made a radical departure from the painted image with the goal of shifting light perception itself to the centre of the observerʼs visual experience.

Alexei Kostroma (*1962) systematically explores the perception of colors, too. In his yellow pigment works, for example, he documents his individual views at the sun, questioning if it is the truth or a deceptive picture we are looking at.

In the works of Carsten Goering (*1982) and Claus Stabe (*1984), one might rather assume a kind of "tomographic view", as they are examining the space in-between their works for visual impressions on truth content and individual outlines.
