Wolfgang Berkowski
Daily Paintings, 2010/2011

Wolfgang Berkowski deconstructs and analyzes artistically forms of communication as well as their meaning and relationships with each other. His work is diverse in terms of material iconography, ranging from video, architectural installations, performance, objects to drawings. Berkowski started the work group Daily Paintings on 23.9.2010 and is, theoretically, designed against infinity. An image is designed every day, paired with a text fragment from a daily newspaper and published as a computer-generated image via the Internet. There are two different narrative tracks: the diagrams on the wall (the diary, the private, the repellent character, those by definition incomprehensible strangers) and the titles on the ground (a continuously evolving and dissolving novel/or a reality that takes place in a continuous continuum between the serious and the banal). Through these two lines, a connection is defined which defines this work. “The form that dominates the painting element comes from my practice of precise drawings, a group of works that I started in 1987 and has continued uninterrupted since then. In this work art (the publicly presented) and the person (the private) are inextricably linked.” (W.B.)
