Thomas Kahl, the unknown Explorer
Kahl created humorous and rebellious forums for ironic interaction with the traditional art business. The self-taught artist was more than just a creative maverick, he did a lot of research but rarely offered an explanation for his works. He was constantly looking for material to turn into paintings, collages, works on paper or dioramas.
Kahl was also a musician and curated events; he organised pop, indie and hip-hop concerts at Kradhalle, created opportunities for other artists. While all the other Kradhalle-artists moved to Berlin over the years, Kahl stayed in Ulm.
The Stadthaus, in cooperation with Galerie Tobias Schrade, is presenting a Thomas Kahl retrospective, showing paintings, objects and installations from different times in his career.
Galerie Tobias Schrade is publishing an accompanying catalogue:
Thomas Kahl - Der unbekannte Forscher.
