Since the beginning of his studies Albert Markert has been concerned with the relationship between art production and art reception, the art market and its artificially created values. His extensive wall installation Künst comprises around 240 collages created between 1978 and 2020. The sheets, with their impetuously mixed character, are collaged on paper from drawings, newspaper clippings, handwritten material, photographs and reworked found material. A lot of quotations, original and modified by the artist, satirized and also figural quotations, which mark a time stamp, can be found on the works. Artist revolves around art production, art distribution, art consumption and art reception. Freedom and diction are the anchor points.
"Artistic freedom has long since solidified into a dogma devoid of content, degenerated into a tyrannical term that asserts itself dictatorially and serves to justify irrelevancies in content. The measure of artistic freedom serves as an indication of the measure of freedom in a society," says Künst.
