Henning Strassburger: Think Tank was published on the occasion of the exhibition of same title at Oldenburger Kunstverein in 2015. What conditions are painting subject to in the age of a so-called and labeled material culture and speculative realism? Is it even possible as a painter to meet the demands of the present time and to produce innocent pictures?

In his exhibition at Kunstverein Oldenburg Henning Strassburger explores these questions and confronts his works with the almost overpowering demands of the current discourse.

The exhibition catalogue includes the short story High written by Henning Strassburger.

Henning Strassburger

Henning Strassburger (b. 1983 in Meissen) is a German painter who explores the position of manual painting in today's digitally overloaded society. His visual language of expressive marks, strokes and recurring motifs appear gestural, but are on closer inspection predetermined. Strassburger’s seemingly spontaneous aesthetic belies a meticulous and pre-planned practice where themes and motifs unfurl across series and over time. The artist lives and works in Berlin and Zurich.
