“Painting in green is a challenge.” (Thomas Huber) Green is a symbol of hope, healing and fertility – but also jealousy, greed and poison.
What happens when we see green – instead of, for example, red? In this first exhibition on a “disturbing” colour, its topicality, its contemporary functions and meanings are at the centre of an extremely exciting presentation. Different aspects and interconnections are presented in painting, installations and video, giving rise to a lively panorama of the contemporary relevance or a colour which is as everyday as it is irritating.
