Visit: Guided tour by Lynda Morris

On Sunday 2 June 2019 you are very welcome at 3 p.m. for a guided tour through the exhibition The Konrad Fischer Years – 1964 – 1978 in the presence of Lynda Morris. During a walk & talk, Lynda Morris will offer us a subjective portrait of Konrad Fischer with whom she stayed in close contact since 1969. The main focus will be on Konrad Fischer’s significance for the artistic exchanges between Europe and the USA in the 1960s and 1970s.

“If you think about the period in which Konrad was born and grew up, it shaped his ideas and points of view. His earliest memories were of the end of World War II, followed by the division of Germany. Konrad devoted all his energy into bringing American and British artists to West Germany alongside his German and European contemporaries.” (Lynda Morris in conversation with K. König and B. Buchloh about Konrad Fischer, Herbert Foundation 2018)

Lynda Morris was connected to the Norwich University of the Arts as curator and professor. In 1969, she started a bookshop for the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) and she cooperated with Konrad Fischer on the exhibition When Attitudes Become Form in London. In 1971, she studied at the Royal College of Art and opened a bookshop for Nigel Greenwood. As a freelance art critic, she wrote for Studio International, Flash Art, Art Monthly and Kunstforum and closely followed the work of artists such as Art & Language, Andre Cadere and Gilbert & George.
