'Everyday Value' - a lunchbox lecture by Günther Herbst
Günther Herbst's talk centres around his ongoing engagement with geometric abstraction in relation to the figurative/landscape and how he brings modernism into a history of imperialism. By colliding formalist concerns with ongoing social and political investigations (into housing and migration) the work stresses the lack of coherence these institutions communicate - their failures, their aspirations. Günther Herbst was born in South Africa and studied at Johannesburg and Berlin. He has an MA Fine Art from Goldsmiths. He exhibits widely, most notably in the UK, Europe and the USA. His work is represented in all major public collections in South Africa, and private collections including William Kentridge, as well as UK public and international private collections. Günther Herbst lives and works in London.
