Michael Langer. The early works

After studying art in Hamburg, Munich and Paris, Michael Langer created his exciting early work in the 1960s, which is considered complete when he (temporarily) gave up painting in 1969. Galerie Michael Haas is presenting a selection of his works from the exciting year 1964.

Langer’s work is characterized by a radical conceptual approach: Figures are relentlessly distorted out of proportion and seemingly randomly spread across the page or canvas. He uses a color aesthetic based on comics, outlines and labels, collages and uses mixed techniques and unusual materials such as plaster.
