Noch moderner, Vol. 2
Even More Modern, Vol. 2
Over three decades, the painting of Anton Henning (*1964) has been both a challenge and an inspiration. For him, “even more modern” means showing the lasting significance of modernism for the present. The first volume of his large-scale catalogue of works of 2018 was a basic introduction to his work as a painter.
“Vol. 2” now offers an unexpected shift of perspective to his in-depth examination of art history from the Renaissance to Romanticism. A rare interview with Anton Henning about his practice and his artistic self-image supplements the extensive picture section.
The beautiful Questa Serif (the Questa Project) by the fantastic type designers Martin Majoor and Jos Buivenga, and Hiragino Mincho ProN.
My regards go to Anton Henning and his wonderful team in Manker, Brandenburg, and Wolfgang Ullrich.
A big thank you to Lydia Fuchs and Polina Bazir and the whole Kerber Verlag team.
