Paul Thek (1933-1988) is considered an artist with cult status. Until March 30, 2008 the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art in Karlsruhe / Germany shows the most comprehensive retrospective of his oeuvre so far. The exhibition “Paul Thek in the Context of Today’s Contemporary Art” presents more than 300 of Paul Thek’s works. Most of them are in private ownership and therefore only seldom publicly shown. In part 1 of our exhibition walkthrough we focus on the work of Paul Thek, the second part we have a look at the works of artists such as Jon Kessler, Mike Kelley and Franz Ackermann. “Paul Thek – Werkschau im Kontext zeitgenössischer Kunst” at ZKM – Museum für Neue Kunst, Open House, January 6, 2008. Part 1/2.
