About the product

Norbert Pümpel started with entropic drawings in the mid-1970s. He addresses complex scientific questions that identify him as a persistent basic researcher in the field of art and science. In his work, he repeatedly takes a stand on socio-political developments and, in particular with the “Scientific Disaster” works, poses the question of ethical responsibility for scientific research. With the large-format picture “Die Moderne taugt nicht zwingend zur Verbesserung der Welt” (Modernity is not necessarily good for improving the world), he makes a clear statement against naive belief in progress and scientific omnipotence fantasies. The most recent, mostly three-dimensional works revolve around materiality, information and imagination in a simple, reduced formal language.
