Gregor Hildebrandt’s largest exhibition to date, covering more than 20 years of his practice, inaugurates a programme of solo exhibitions by major living artists presented at Kunsthalle Praha. Working mainly with analogue sound storage mediums, the German artist creates sculptures, installations, and paintings with materials such as compression moulded vinyl, audiotapes on canvas or cassette shells. 

Hildebrandt’s work makes formal references to Minimalism and Abstract expressionism, it is also nourished by a multitude of literary, cinematographic, musical and architectural inspirations. These cultural sources trigger both collective and personal memories.

Including iconic works, less known pieces, and site-specific installations, A Blink of an Eye and the Years Are Behind Us: Gregor Hildebrandt aims to bring a sense of the Berlin-based artist’s universe to Prague through an ongoing programme featuring Hildebrandt’s guests. Thus, the exhibition will have a performative character, with Kunsthalle Praha’s exhibition spaces transformed, once in a while, into a venue for concerts and events.
