In the organizer's words:

"Fragment of an Infinite Discourse" - Fragment of an Infinite Discourse is the title of an artwork by Mexican conceptual artist Mario García Torres. Three glass rings interlock without touching. The work is the prelude to the exhibition and illustrates its program. It shows how subtly and at the same time indissolubly things are connected to each other, stimulating different associations, sensations and interpretations. Quite vividly, the rings as geometric elements indicate the infinite circular form. "Fragment of an Infinite Discourse" as the exhibition title is therefore meant to represent the abundance of conceptual positions and at the same time open up the multiple possibilities of interpretations and perspectives.
In the very first room of the exhibition, we encounter"Fragment of an Infinite Discourse" in dialogue with works by Giorgio Griffa, Prabhavathi Meppayil and Karin Sander. Together, the works show a range of artistic methods and cultural traditions that are here brought into contact with each other and into mutual illumination. The focus is on the methods and work-specific logics of painting, conceptual art, and applied techniques. For ultimately it is the concrete nature of a work that distinguishes it from language and text.

"Fragment of an Infinite Discourse" was created as an exhibition in honor of the donation of Jörg Johnen. It is shown in conjunction with holdings of the Lenbachhaus and the KiCo Foundation.
