You can’t miss Katharina Grosse’s works: the painter sprays her shimmering bold colors onto everything, from sculptures and objects to the urban expanses of walls, streets and parks. Grosse occupies empty space with a sensitive emotionality. Her installations place you in the centre and absorb you, almost in defiance of the room itself as the expanses of color dissemble walls and floors. Now reopened, the Hamburger Bahnhof is dedicating a comprehensive solo show to these works – Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us – making its own interior and exterior walls available as canvases for Grosse’s work. Multi-dimensional, unpredictable and boundless, the exhibition touches numerous social issues and offers an innovative example of how colorful art can be. If you want a taster, next week (02.07.) Grosse herself will be taking you through the exhibition in a video walk.
