Albrecht Schnider's canvases are always recognizable as products of painting, but they irritate our expectations. With showy artificiality, the artist suggests content but, at the same time, calls attention to the lack of subject matter. In the new anonymous portraits, clear contours outline the heads but faces, replaced with a white mark, question the role of the picture as a disseminator of meaning. This title features 60 paintings, including stylized landscapes, a large selection of drawings - the foundation of Schnider's art - and several sculptures never before shown.
