With the exhibition Baselitz Re-Mixed Kunstforeningen GL STRAND opened its doors to one of the most significant painters today. Georg Baselitz (b. 1938). He is one of the most prominent visual artists of his generation. The German artist works with sculpture, drawings and graphic art, but is best known for his characteristic paintings whose subjects are often shown ‘upside down’. This detaches the subject from the reality it represents. Now Georg Baselitz has introduced a new artistic device into his art: the remix. This is a concept taken from the world of music. In the remix pictures he re-paints his own subjects from the 1960s and 1970s. In this way he looks at his paintings afresh and renews himself. At the same time Baselitz quotes the works of other artists, re-paints them and thus makes the subjects his own: They are his painterly comments on other artists’ work. The artists to whom Baselitz refers in his remix pictures include Edvard Munch, Andy Warhol and Sigmar Polke – artists whose work Baselitz appreciates greatly. For Georg Baselitz remixing is a method of subjecting painting to a revision; of putting it to the test. Unlike the older works, the remix versions are spontaneous in expression, just as the colours are brighter and clearer. The remix pictures are the central focus of the exhibition at GL STRAND.

Contents: Preface and article about the collection in Silkeborg by Jacob Thage Article about each of the 100 artists with short reviews and photos of the artist's essential works from the collection, presented in alphabetical order.

The show intends partly to take part in globalisation and partly to limit the focus to visual arts and the plethora it represents. The exhibition accomplishes this by presenting six selected artists, all Korean residents, and thus in a Danish perspective providing the Danish audience with an opportunity of experiencing how a group of contemporary Korean visual artists work. The artists utilize an international form language in installations, conceptual art, and videos while at the same time researching into developing and refining these expressions.
