Sightseeing Trip – Eberhard Havekost in Kochi

27 May 2012 Durbar Hall The artist Eberhard Havekost Eberhard Havekost is one of the most important artists of his generation. He was born in Dresden in 1967 and studied painting from 1991 to 1996 at the distinguished, historic academy in Dresden.

He perceives its complex structures as details taken from the whole: facades, streets, cars, shop windows, passers-by. Filtered through various media and transformed visually, these views of everyday life combine...
