Alicja Kwade is one of the most sought-after contemporary artists* of our day. Her works are inspired by scientific, philosophical and social questions. Materials such as gold, coal, stone or symbolically charged objects such as clocks and lamps play a special role for the artist as references to aspects of time, energy, matter or certain value attributions.
