The Kunstverein Bielefeld is delighted to present The Immanent Horizon, featuring Leda Bourgogne, Olivier Foulon & Alexander Lieck, Samuel Richardot and Charline Tyberghein. The show addresses the current status quo of painterly practice and its critical potential.

The late 1960s saw the dissolution of painting’s boundaries and its departure from its traditional location on the canvas. Painters devoted to critical analysis radically opened up the form of their artworks, placing medium-specific reception into question. Debates around questions of institutional critique focused on making visible the institution of art within the exhibition space. This was accompanied by a new reckoning with the conditions under which exhibition takes place. In this context, Daniel Buren remarked: “Only if we recognize the significance of the sequence of different frames/limits, can a work/product, as we understand it, be put in relation to these limits, revealing them.” However, this position was not simply yet another declaration of the end of painting. Instead, it made art’s immanent social preconditions palpable and recognizable.

Today, critical perspectives on painting address these questions under quite different circumstances. Painting has long since absorbed critical points of view, and has begun to question its own medial context. The Immanent Horizon presents a current conception of the image, which is expressed in diverse artistic practices reflecting the conditions of painting as a praxis.

Das Diptychon *Conversation under a tree* entstand in Zusammenarbeit des Konzeptkünstlers Olivier Foulon und des Malers Alexander Lieck. Obwohl die beiden Leinwände zunächst identisch wirken, weisen sie bei näherer Betrachtung Unterschiede auf.
