Daniel Buren—Introduction

Daniel Buren, the French master of Minimal Art, chose the sequence of colored and white stripes with a width of 8.7 cm as his basic design element. His work owes its great international reputation to the fact that it explores the framework conditions of art. Each new work is a further answer to the question of how color and space interact in the architectural context and how they affect the viewer.

Buren sees his work as painting at zero-point. He reduced painting in his own way: he dispensed with depicting reality, he did not limit himself to the surface of a canvas, he did not evoke any emotionality, and he gave no room for individuality in the depiction.

In the new exhibition Color and Form in Dialogue, which has been on view at the Cadoro—Center for Art and Science in Mainz, since the turn of the year, Daniel Buren—the French Master of Minimal Art meets Raimund Girke—the Painter of White. In the two halves of the showroom on the ground floor of the Cadoro, the works of the two masters face each other. The works in their diversity illustrate the multifaceted nature of (abstract) art rather than forming a contrast. Rather, the works complement each other, focusing on color on the one hand and form on the other.
