N.Lichtig, Painting as Passage — group exhibitions accompanied by editions (in German and French), 2017— ongoing

The exhibition series addresses the vast field of painting, accessing it from a perspective that goes beyond generally accepted approaches: To what extent can painting be defined? And from what notions can it be defined? What is its purpose, or what is it necessary for? In attempting to examine the spectrum of what can be considered painting in the broadest sense in contemporary art, a diversity of topics and areas of interest are included, intended to serve as suggestions for discussing painting from various viewpoints.

The exhibition Unfinished Sympathy questions the relation between painting & time, Phototropia approached the relation between painting & space, and Grammaires fantômes / Phantomgrammatiken develops from interrogations concerning the link between painting & language.
