"My pictures are created in the studio. I work there alone and try to make new pictures from existing pictures. I used to have the fantasy of creating a picture from my imagination, but my paintings change during their creation, and refer to previous and future pictures. I need the experience, yet at the same time my pictures should be fresh and unique. If I find my picture boring, there is a good chance that the viewer will feel the same. Boris Becker once said that he was never nervous in a tennis match, since he was only ever able to control his own game anyway. The performance of a painter also depends on more than one player. Pictures end up on screens, in galleries, art associations or museums. There, the conditions of their reception change dramatically: new spaces and voices are added. I am interested in the manner in which pictures, painters and viewers present themselves in an art institution like Museum Brandhorst. In a world of screens, we constantly see and question paintings anew. Can we, do we want to continue to view pictures in isolation, as paintings? Can painters, do painters still want to paint pictures without reference to an endless outer world? In which relationship, therefore, do viewers, pictures, the creators of these pictures and the exhibitors see themselves? In the “Spot On” exhibition rooms devoted to Josh Smith and Jana Euler and Thomas Eggerer, we discuss these questions with the curator Monika Bayer-Wermuth. In the practical part of the workshop we present ourselves as picture-makers, using the pictures of Smith, Euler and Eggerer as a “grid”, which we then recharge by painting."


Thomas von Poschinger (born 1981) is an artist who lives and works in Munich. He has a Master’s degree in art history, and was a master student of Günther Förg.

CANCELED | The dark side of Pop Art

The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. At the same time, their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. The tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass cul

CANCELED | Between identity politics and collective neurosis – Art and society from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst

Since the 1960s many artists have addressed questions of identity in their works, with reference to skin color, sexual orientation or social class. They celebrate these identities, but also make discrimination visible. Together we look at artworks that focus on the theme of identity and contrast them with pieces that examine the desire for optimization and the collective neuroses of our performanc

CANCELED | Long live painting! Painting from the 1960s to today

The death of painting has been declared at regular intervals ever since the invention of photography, its significance deemed obsolete. Based on selected works from the 1960s to the present day, you can discover here how painting as a medium has not merely defended its position in art, but how it also picks up on and reflects on changes in image culture, from photography to television to social me
