From 23rd January 2022, in the exhibition Vertauschte Köpfe (Transposed Heads), KUNSTWERK Sammlung Klein in Eberdingen-Nussdorf is displaying central groups of pieces and current works by Andreas und Konrad Mühe. Examining the connecting link in the obviously different, this is the first joint project produced by the brothers, who live in Berlin.


Andreas Mühe (*1979 in Karl-Marx-Stadt) is a photo artist whose work is characterised by the precise and pointed content staging of his subjects. The presentation of his figurative characters takes on an almost sculptural quality. Emphasised with sensitive lighting in the often dark image space, they appear to be removed from any temporality; yet, at the same time, they are a stark representation of the historical and political connotations of their own present.

Konrad Mühe, who was born three years after his brother, likewise in Karl-Marx-Stadt, is a filmmaker and visual artist. Video projections, film content and spatial displays form a conceptual entity in his video installations. Since 2017, so-called “projected beings” have emerged from processed metal shelves. In their shape and in their connection with projectors, they develop human expressive qualities as heads, which in turn look like internal mind worlds in interaction with the film content.

The reflections of both artists on the media representation of personal and collective identity are condensed at biographical level and run like a thread through the entire exhibition. The sons of actor Ulrich Mühe, who died in 2007, and theatre director Annegret Hahn employ construction and reconstruction processes – Konrad Mühe in the film “Questions to My Father”, and Andreas Mühe in his “Mischpoche” (Tribe) cycle of works – to create new images between truth and fiction.



Zwischenzeit (Meantime)

In Hängung #23 KUNSTWERK presents works from the Klein collection that have never been presented before or that have not been presented for a long time. On display are drawings, photographic works and paintings by artists including Michelin Kober and Thomas Müller as well as Erdmut Bramke, Daniele Buetti, Gunter Damisch, Andy Denzler, Spandita Malik and Michelangelo Pistoletto.


KUNSTWERK is currently closed for alteration of the exhibition. From Sunday 23rd January, under the title Vertauschte Köpfe (Transposed Heads), we will present photographs by Andreas Mühe and video sculptures by Konrad Mühe. For the first time, the two brothers, who live in Berlin, will be producing a joint project here.


Alison and Peter W. Klein have exhibited their art collection in the museum designed by Folker Rockel since October 2007.
