Catalogue Note

"Retrospectively, the reason for the continued importance of Förg’s oeuvre becomes clear. The evolution of his direct, subjective engagement with the aesthetic of the sublime oscillates between appropriation and homage, yet Förg does so without any ironic quotations or other such cheap distancing techniques.”

Andreas Schlaegel
