Kunstverein Munich: Untilted – Wilhelm de Rooij

Tonight was the opening of the new exhibition of the Kunstverein Munich after renovation. It is a retrospective of Wilhelm de Rooij including 7 monumental hand-woven tapestries (2 new) – often in monochrome or black. There are no reference or 1000 references. According to the artist there is no intention, just the material. But this is not enough – not enough for the artist and not enough for the curating. Without contextualization and without idea why exhibiting these tapestries, this show remains without risk, without gaining any knowledge. A boring start for the “new” Kunstverein.
