We are proud to announce that Henning Strassburger has kindly created the four collages below exclusively for Don’t Panic Berlin!
Strassburger, born on 1983 in Meissen, DE, is an artist living and working in Berlin. His recent past exhibitions include So Athletic (with Wendy White) (2012) at the Verein zur Förderung von Kunst und Kultur am Rosa-Luxemburg Platz e.V., Abstract Ilona (2011) at Kavi Gupta Gallery in Berlin, and SoftiDrink (2011) at Kunstverein Heppenheim. Strassburger is represented by Fiebach, Minninger in Cologne and Soy Capitán in Berlin.
In Henning Strassburger’s collages golden and brown locks of hair stand in for a painter’s deliberate gesture. A recurring subject matter for Strassburger, this hair cynically deliberates on painting’s socio-aesthetic construction, suggesting that it is vanitas, decadence, and fashion that drive art history.
