With and in “pictures,” Henning Strassburger contemplates the abysmal possibilities of painting in a world in which the virtuality of social media seems “more real” than reality itself. Is the present thus merely an immaterial fiction? In the exhibition ALPHAKEVIN developed for the Kunstverein Heppenheim, Strassburger juxtaposes painterly gestures with oversized details of photographs. As an integral component, his new publication becomes a presentation panel, and, like painting itself, a catalyzer for all kinds of visual media.
