Contemporary/Hubert Kostner

Hubert
Kostner

Shifts, development processes and transformations play a central role in the artistic work of Hubert Kostner.


Materials and objects from the artist's immediate environment are detached from the conventional context and thus made readable anew. His perceptive and individual point of view confronts the everyday with the weapons of a sober subtlety. Kostner's works, however, remain far removed from accusations and are rather in the realm of a not necessarily conciliatory irony. His works are also basically about exposing original meanings and actual realities behind an idealistic world view and adjusting our vision of the world.
