Artist Günther Uecker at K20

Günther Uecker during construction of exhibition
"Where language fails, the picture starts", was once said by Günther Uecker, and this sentence plays a role through all of the decades of his art production. This man is famous for his nail reliefs, which start to breathe depending on the perspective and the angle of light. However, Uecker is also sculptor, performance artist and filmmaker, and the exhibition at K20 presents every facet of this extraordinary artist.
