More than any other artist of his day Richard Jackson has focused his attention on the radical expansion of painting. For the first time the Schirn is assembling five of his 12 extensive installations. In his Rooms, comic-like figures, animals or objects become actors involved in a unique process: Air compressors and pumps cause rich colors to flow through tubes and funnels, through ears, mouths and other body orifices and spread them across the floor, walls, furnishings and figures. The publication takes up Jackson’s painterly process and guides the reader through the rooms with their ever-changing perspectives and bright colors. Essays by author Chris Kidd, art historian Christian Janecke and curator Matthias Ulrich place the works by the Californian artist in context and highlight important links with art, politics and history.
TIP Thanks to the detailed texts on the individual rooms and installations as well as the comprehensive photographic documentation, readers can enjoy discovering ever new details and connections to the history of art and current events.
