von Kleist
Artist Magazine
RUW! II.

The second issue of R U W ! is dedicated to Heinrich von Kleist (1777 - 1811), who took his life and that of his lover, at the shore of the Wannsee.

The sudden starting and ending of art historical periods has led to subjective confusion in reference to the Jena Romantics in general but specifically Kleist. The same took place with regards to Surrealism. The assumed motive behind this being fear of death. The unforeseen discharges us from being time-bound and throws us into timelessness. Towards murder and suicide. This is where coincidences turn into most serious matter.

RUW! was initiated by Hans Könings. Twelve different artists produced 50 handmade works for this theme called »Kleist«. As if gesture and calculus, black and white as well as color, abundance and blankness, had always belonged together. And with them coincidence and plan, feeling and understanding and what else there is to antitheses and oppositions which pervade art and life. (uo)
