After the first installation of Thomas Hirschhorn on the façade, n.b.k. continues its project series on urban space with the Austrian artist Gerwald Rockenschaub (b. 1952 in Königswiesen, lives in Berlin and Vienna).
At the beginning of his international career, Rockenschaub worked in the field of neo-Geo painting, which appeared as a countermovement to neo-expressionism, reduced its repertoire with the goal of separating the work from the individual sensitivity of the artist. Rockenschaub thus abandoned work with paint and brush in the late 1980s, later working with acrylic glass, adhesive foils, and industrially made materials. In confrontation with art and architectural history and popular culture, the result emerges in large format works. For the façade of nbk, Gerwald Rockenschaub developed a new intervention that can be seen for the duration of one year.
