In the gallery of the Kunsthalle Leoben, the Kunstforum Leoben presents exhibitions by a wide variety of contemporary artists with international appeal.
Günter Konrad's (born 1976 in Leoben) series of collages and overpaintings is concealed behind the exhibition's title Covert and discovered history . Since 2011, his serial work has combined fragments of famous individual works from art history with his own drawings, spray paintings, sketches and snapshots in graphic and photo programs. On the one hand, Konrad delves into the past, searching for art-historical artifacts of high culture from past eras, and on the other, he works on new, wild, unbridled visual worlds, both analog and digital. He liquefies established codes and creates a new visual grammar.
