5 pm. jourfixe: heiner franzen. performance-lecture – in collaboration with akademie der bildenden künste, munich

The work of Heiner Franzen has no beginning and no end. His drawings rather follow Franzen’s own, open definition of the artwork. Within this definition, mechanisms of personal as well as collective memory play a crucial role. Franzen’s motifs float in a state of constant mutation. Flashing details from movies or Franzen’s cartoonesque figures emerge in new forms and materiality. Thus, Franzen examines the removal of boundaries of his materials by constantly updating them. Every image is the reflection of another.
