Introducing Olaf Breuning

Testing the Limits of Humor and Aesthetics

Posted by Gestalten—06/2016

Swiss artist Olaf Breuning pushes the boundaries of contemporary art with his keen sense of irony and idiosyncratic visuals. His practice is definitively interdisciplinary: from photo-collages to installations, and from performances to paintings, Breuning’s work is provocative, relatable, and inherently humorous. Released concurrently with the artist’s retrospective at the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, our new book Olaf Breuning documents and showcases the cross-section of the prolific artist’s oeuvre. The monograph is now available at Gestalten Space Berlin and in our webshop.
