The catalogue accompanying Michael Müller’s solo exhibition premiere at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art
Michael Müller (*1970 in Ingelheim) examines processes of composition and translation in visual art in continually changing formations that cut across all artistic genres. His oeuvre is characterized by a versatility that appropriates historical as well as contemporary artistic codes, yet which is experienced in its coherence at the same time. Be it through Müller’s narrative voices Hermes and Hermaphroditos, which guide us through the exhibition as well as the catalogue, or through the artist himself, who is repeatedly implied and becomes visible in the adapted works. It quickly becomes clear that from Müller’s perspective, the title Who’s Speaking? also means “what is being said?” and “why?” The fact that there is no unequivocal answer to these questions makes up the special experience of Müller’s works. It pays to listen!
