Franz Erhard Walther is a key figure in the departure from the image since the European postwar period. Beyond the classical understanding of sculpture and painting, Walther formulated a completely new concept of work that included the viewer as an actor. Early in his work, fabric – until then an unusual artistic material – became a source of innovation for Walther, from which the “activation objects” emerged. In the wall formations of the 1980s, he achieved an incomparable interweaving of painting, sculpture, and architecture that continues to this day.
