German artist Leni Hoffmann (born 1962) revisits the potentials of modernist and avant-garde (particularly Russian Constructivist) painting, but using materials such as concrete, ceramic and plastic tarps. Returning to the aspirations of El Lissitzky and Alexander Rodchenko, Hoffmann in turn questions the social neutrality of art, through colorful site-specific installations that extend painting into architectural space and everyday life.
