Michael Janssen Berlin is pleased to announce the solo exhibition of our artist MARGRET EICHER at
Kunstmuseum Moritzburg, Halle (Saale)
1 October 2022—8 January 2023
With her latest work the concept artist Margret Eicher has written herself into the history of war images. Yet she is not a war reporter who takes and publishes photographs of the horror. As an artist she works with the media memory of cultural history and the narratives of popular culture, which latter has integrated war as a master story. Entitled Battle:Reloaded, her latest contribution is a 30-meter-long tapestry, made in a continuous digital work process from the compositional collage of the motif to production on state-of-the-art Jacquard looms at a Belgian weaving mill.

To accompany the exhibition, a limited edition artist’s book will be published as an elaborately handcrafted leporello, which can be folded out to a length of 5 metres and is stored in a high-quality slipcase.
