Albert Oehlen: Spiegelbilder. Mirror Paintings 1982–1990

Galerie Max Hetzler Berlin | Paris | London / Nahmad Contemporary / Holzwarth Publications, Berlin 2020
With an essay by Raphael Rubinstein

‘Art can be slow to reveal itself. Even when work gains immediate recognition, as was the case with the Spiegelbilder or Mirror Paintings, a series of oil paintings with mirrors attached to them that Albert Oehlen created between 1982 and 1990, time must pass before we can begin to grasp its fuller relationship to its epoch, and to ours. Now, nearly forty years later, the implications and importance of this distinctive body of work – to art history and to our understanding of Oehlen's work in general – are emerging.’
