(Image: Monika Baer, Blaue Karten, 2011, oil on canvas, 80 x 60 cm; © Galerie Barbara Weiss, Berlin / photo: Jens Ziehe) Monika Baer (b. 1964, Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany) Monika Baer’s paintings deal with the idea of landscape or stagescape, with articulation and deconstruction, and with narration.

(Image: André Butzer, Château Pettersson und Findus, 2011, Oil on canvas, 195 x 150 cm; © Berlin Charlottenburg) André Butzer (b. 1973, Stuttgart, Germany) André Butzer has been developing a very distinct form of artistic expression since the late nineties, which he refers to as Science-Fiction-Expressionism, and persistently condenses.  Along with the figurative works, inspired by Walt Disney comics with their self-created characters such as the Schande-Mensch or the Friedens-Siemens, which...
