Leben zwischen den Stühlen

Erzählungen über das Menschsein

Ruprecht von Kaufmann’s (b. Munich, 1974; lives and works in Berlin) work revolves around the human being in all his facets. A leading narrative painter, von Kaufmann chooses subjects that reflect his critical loyalty to the painting of modernism and visual language as a medium of storytelling. The latter can touch people by conveying powerful emotions: that is the idea behind Kaufmann’s portraits, which confront us with vulnerable individuals.

After the series of sensitive portraits of refugees published in book form last year, Kaufmann’s new monograph offers an overview of his work of the 2010s. With an essay by Sylvia Volz.
