The new catalogue presents new works and views of Fischer's exhibition ER DACHTE ALLES 3 at the gallery. With an essay by Bettina Haiss and a recollection of a visit to the artist's studio by Gesine Borcherdt.

Andi Fischer’s schematized, colorful drawings and paintings reveal the features of forms, objects, and events. They are populated by figures composed of circles and lines; detailed with simple gestures, their bodies are usually only partially colored. Their quick and lively rendering in oil pastels is reminiscent of a young child’s use of wax crayons. People, crocodiles, lions, tigers, suns, houses, swordfish, swans, trees, and apples can all be recognized as frequent recurring motifs. With the addition of a drawn sword, an otherwise unremarkable stick figure becomes a heroic warrior, while the jagged bared teeth of a crocodile or tiger can be interpreted as clear indications of imminent danger.
