Artist Talk and Book Presentation
Heinrich Dunst, Kolja Reichert (Bundeskunsthalle Bonn)

The critic and author Kolja Reichert has consistently worked in the German-speaking countries through his moderation and text work to open up art to a broad audience. His statement that art can be understood as philosophy with objects is also interesting. This seems to imply a certain connection to the work of Heinrich Dunst as well, and so it is not surprising that Reichert is a companion of the artist and knows and appreciates his work. 

The HALLE FÜR KUNST has invited Kolja Reichert to raise interesting questions about Heinrich Dunst’s artistic œuvre in conversation with him. How can Dunst’s working method best be understood? And what particular insights can be gained about the exhibition? 

Reichert will also introduce his new book Kann ich das auch? 50 Fragen an die Kunst (Klett-Cotta 2022).
