In this exposition Christian Eder contrasts contemporary paintings to late Gothic works in order to dare an exciting time step.

For a man of the middle Ages the essential of a work of art was the harmonious whole issue as well the symbolism. Although the concept was conditioned by shape and form already, it was not observed. In the Late Gothic, the barrier to Renaissance, the concept became more and more important and finally it becomes the essential part of the art work. Today the essential of an art work is the transformation of an idea, of a concept into an immediate figuration, which follows any demands of a system and can be varied between order and irritation as well between complexness and clearness. The contemporary painting captures his value by the sensual dialog between the viewer and the interactions from the single components of the image concept, such as colors, forms, lines and surface. An art work like this should be experienced in immediate sensuality.

The variable image concepts and creations by Christian Eder invites the visitor to a process of comparing and distinguishing moreover to a reflection of the own perception. There in the focus are the serial and linear image compositions from the artist, which are characterized by formal severity, sensual presence and effortlessness.
