Often grouped with the so-called Neo-Geo artists of the early 1980s, Gerwald Rockenschaub (born 1952) finds inspiration for his frequently three-dimensional, brilliantly colorful works in modernism, Pop, minimalism and the techno and electronic music scene in which he has long DJ'd. This volume tracks the development of his style.
German artist Gerwald Rockenschaub (born 1952) creates large works from synthetic industrial materials that utilize Pop aesthetics and reflect contemporary fashion and lifestyle. This catalogue presents Rockenschaub’s Color Foils, which appear as both purely abstract constructions and familiar images or objects.

This project monograph records Gerwald Rockenschaub’s installation at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. Rockenschaub installed a 216-foot wall covered with 385 colorful pictograms made of adhesive foil, that resemble a strange hybrid of computer icons and Egyptian hieroglyphs. Here, the entire work is reproduced as installed.
