Published on the occasion of the exhibition Katharina Grosse, Wolke in Form eines Schwertes/Cloud in the Form of a Sword, Galerie nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder, Vienna, 2021.

In two far-ranging and erudite essays, the philosopher Ludger Schwarte and the art historian Luca Cerizza cast an eye – from their differing perspectives and vantage points – over these paintings, whose sweeping gestures and exuberant vitality transgress hitherto recognized spatial and cognitive boundaries.

Luca Cerizza is a freelance curator and art writer. He currently lives in Turin and Milan, where he has been teaching curatorial studies and museology in the MA program of NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti) since 2006.

Selected publications include essays on post-minimalist practices and art from the 1990s onward, including recent texts on Ian Wilson, Kazuko Miyamoto and Elodie Seguin. Cerizza is editor of an anthology of texts by art critic Tommaso Trini (Milan: Johan & Levi 2016) and catalogues on Gianni Pettena and Diego Perrone (both: Mousse 2020).

Ludger Schwarte has been a professor of philosophy at the Kunstakademie (Art Academy) in Düsseldorf since 2009. His research focuses on aesthetics, political philosophy, the philosophy of culture, and the history of science. Selected publications include Pikturale Evidenz. Zur Wahrheitsfähigkeit des Bildes (Paderborn: W. Fink 2015), Notate für eine künftige Kunst (Berlin: Merve 2016) and Denken in Farbe. Zur Epistemologie des Malens (Berlin: August 2020).
