Friedrich Kunath

Press release

Friedrich Kunath – Sensitive Euro Man

Friedrich Kunath has no belief in Romanticism, yet artistically he remains under its aegis. From the writings of Schlegel, he learned about irony as a fundamental aesthetic principle of Romanticism. Romantic irony is the conceptual abyss to this subjectivist art form: its meta-level or double floor - or both. In Romantic art, irony has its own characters and tricks, such as the Buffo, or clown and light-hearted deconstructor in opera, and the Parabase, a level of reflection specially introduced into a work identifying the artist, conditions, and principles of its creation and subject.
