Wartenberger Panels, 2023

In his works, Wilhelm Klotzek approaches the urban body in different ways. The artist performs another variation of the approach in Wartenberger Panels (2023). In short texts, he tells of the hidden art on buildings and of its rediscovery on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz. Analogies emerge between varicose veins and representations of history in the pictorial worlds of the painter Adolph Menzel. These narratives are paired with photographs of the interior life of an apartment. Provisional arrangements of unsorted piles of books or a kettle on the gas stove meet observations of Berlin’s urban space.
