"When painters write, it is not a question of valuations, but a nutritional question." (Hans Platschek 1962)
"The painter, essayist and art critic Hans Platschek would have celebrated his 100th birthday in March 2023. The research of all those involved in this project offers a new perspective of an extremely productive 20th century personality with a comprehensive education, cosmopolitan vision and a cultural network of international reach. Platschek's journalistic activity motivated several generations of artists and cultural workers who were open to a discursive debate about aesthetic practice and theory, the art business, the museum, the market and the media". (Claus Mewes/Selima Niggl)

»es gibt im Moment keine besseren Künstler als uns in Deutschland«
HP Zimmer, Tagebuch 1957–1965
2023. 248 Pages, 100 Ills.
Paperback wit flaps
This book presents representative excerpts from the manuscript, which was reviewed by the artist in the early 1990s. Stylistically aware and (self-) critical, Zimmer comments on the cultural and social climate of postwar Germany. He provides insights into the contemporary German art scene and its European network with close ties to the Situationist International. The debates recorded by Zimmer in his diaries – about painting and artistic freedom as well as revolution, boxing matches, crime series, and the threat of nuclear war – are still strangely relevant to us today.
