  • Catalogue Essay

    Like Beuys’ disciple Palermo, with whom he shared a studio in 1968, Knoebel devoted his attention in various analytical series to the relationship between space, carrier and colour. He was indebted to his second great master Kasimir Malevich for a certain reduction to the elementary coordinates of painting. (D.Zwirner, Imi Knoebel, in exhibition catalogue, German Art from Beckmann to Richter, Images of a Divided Country, Berlin 1997, p.523).
