More about the artwork

In the early 2000s, Jutta Koether subjected her art to a series of strict systems. In 2004, she undertook the monumental work “Fresh Aufhebung”, limiting herself to a uniform scale, 50 x 40 centimeters, and a single color, black. The resulting 170 canvases are a testament to the expressive potential of such limitations. Started and finished in a single day, almost like the practice of keeping a diary, each canvas stands as a minimal yet distinct and self-contained abstract gesture. The entire series is also presented, in sequence, in an accompanying video. As Koether puts it, “I simply believe – for me personally, but also in general – that it is important, if you want painting to continue to thrive, to be truly something productive, positively connotated, which produces something new, you have to constantly practice how to read and perceive pictures.”
