The work of KP Brehmer (1938-1997) is not easy to categorise. His oeuvre includes paintings, prints, drawings and films that look like diagrams, statistical graphics, abstract art and also advertising posters. But the austere visual idiom of this German artist always masks a sharp sense of irony as he comments on the art world, the media landscape and society. More than twenty years after his death, his observations remain surprisingly apposite. The Kunstmuseum Den Haag is to present the first major retrospective of KP Brehmer’s work in the Netherlands, in collaboration with the Neues Museum in Nuremberg, Hamburger Kunsthalle and Arter Istanbul.
