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.

Joyously chromatic and brimming with reckless vitality, the paintings, drawings and collages of Danish artist Tal R (born 1967) are anything but academic--hence the ironic title of this overview, which surveys works from the past 20 years of his vast output as well as a series of new works. Tal R has been a storyteller from the outset of his career in the 1990s, always hovering between figuration and abstraction with a special eye for the overlooked, hidden and repressed spaces of modern life. "I do painting a bit like people make a lunch box," he once declared. "I constantly have this hot-pot boiling and I throw all kinds of material into it." While the artist is well known as a prolific publisher of artist's books (usually gathering specific bodies of work), Academy of Tal R is the most substantial overview of his diverse ouevre yet published.

Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) was a progressive and spiritualist painter and a pioneer among women artists. She regarded herself to to be a disciple of “High Masters” from another dimension, and she expressed in her painting what she understood as her dialogue with the movements of Theosophy and Rosicrucianism. She was also a student of Rudolph Steiner’s teachings. Her work ranges from the colorful, geometrical style of early modernism, to excellent portraits, to an abstracted fantasy world reminiscent of Klimt. This short monograph contains a biographical essay presenting her ideas, her reasoning and her ambitions in a most intriguing and concise manner.
