As an annual gift for the Frankfurter Kunstverein, the artist Christian Flamm (born 1974 in Stuttgart) has produced a fibre pen drawing that subtly plays with the viewer’s perception. It takes some time to assemble a figure from the abstract landscape of lines and to recognize that it is a figure of public life: The picture shows the then Federal Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, who was attacked with a paint bag at a party conference of the Green Party, where the deployment of the German Armed Forces in Kosovo was under discussion. The attack has gone down in history. Christian Flamm’s work is not merely a graphic reproduction of a photograph taken from the media, but a picture puzzle: the abstract line drawing is transformed into a picture that has made history, but from there it also returns to its original impression again and again by refusing a figurative reading. In the end, it is an abstract drawing.
