about this work
Albert Oehlen frequently juxtaposes images from a variety of different sources to create new humorous and poetic work. Aus dem Nachlass, 2007 was produced to accompany Oehlen’s Whitechapel Gallery show I will always Champion Good Painting and combines images of artifacts belonging to Surrealist André Breton, which were about to be sold at auction, with a portrait of Breton.
about Albert Oehlen
Albert Oehlen, who studied with Sigmar Polke in the 1970s, came to prominence in the early 1980’s alongside Martin Kippenberger with whom he often collaborated. Oehlen was part of a generation of artists who actively sought to reject the dominant cultural values of the time, embracing painting when conceptual art had completely discarded the medium. Throughout his career his work has centered on a singular investigation into painting practice.
Oehlen has had solo exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; Gagosian, Rome and group shows at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Saatchi Gallery, London; ICA, London and the Guggenheim, Bilbao. His work is part of many collections, such as at the Museum fur Modern Kunst, Frankfurt and the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
