Andreas Schulze and Sprüth Magers share a history. In February 1983 Monika Sprüth opened her Cologne gallery with an Andreas Schulze exhibition, and since that fateful day he has had fifteen solo exhibitions with the gallery, in Berlin, London and Los Angeles. He has also exhibited widely in museums, including a solo exhibition at Villa Merkel, Esslingen (2014), which travelled to the Kunstmuseum Bonn and Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2015). Most recently, he had a solo exhibition at the Kunsthalle Bielefeld (2018).
Celebrating Schulze's unique achievement, Jörg Heiser, writer and professor at Universität der Künste Berlin, explores the artist's life and work in an in-depth essay, from his early days in Cologne's heady 1980s art scene to his important room installations and his recent paintings based on his travels in Sicily. Heiser coined the term 'intranscendence' to characterise the inward, fearless nature of the artist's vision. We invite you to join the esteemed critic on a guided tour through Schulze's playful oeuvre.
