Desire and Passion | Death and the Devil
Peter Robert Keil
An Exhibition Concept with a Selection of Pictures from the Keil Collection Heidelberg.
Catalog of the exhibition in the rooms of the Keil Collection Heidelberg for the Long Night of Museums in Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg, 2011.
The grappling with the individual and his erotic energies – decisive for the 1970s – which were to be liberated from society’s norms, is presented in the exemplary works of Peter Robert Keil. The artist’s more recent works confront the utopian-visionary character of these works with the hope for change in society. Here we recognize a cipher language that plunges primarily into the erotic interior world of the individual and that no longer displays an example of an act of refusal and change. Play and dream are also sources of creativity. P. Keil has always been fascinated by the unconventional. His works, then and now, are characteristically drastic, dynamic, and garishly colorful; they testify to the early phase and the further course of West German Neo-Expressionism.
