The abc - art berlin contemporary took place in 2009 with the focus on painting. I was lucky that I could go and stumbled across a discussion between Peter Geimer and Isabelle Graw later that day, issuing the Tuymans strategy and paintings as quasi-persons. The ‘new revelations’ didn’t grasp my interest so much, because they seemed familiar. Now, reading through the final booklet, which resulted from the debate, is exciting and recommendable: A well described status quo about contemporary painting. I scanned the whole book and you can download it here ↓ Have fun!
