Share it - Marco Stanke and Alf Lechner
1/3

In the paintings by artist Marco Stanke (*1987), the canvas not only proves to be the carrier of the picture, but also as a spatial structure of paint, nettle and stretcher frame. Stanke's work oscillates between “pictorial field” and “pictorial world,” which tests the physical limits of the image and playfully abolishes the difference between what is “visually visible” and “in which” it is visible. By folding, cutting, bending and piercing the canvases, Stanke transgresses traditional boundaries of painting and expands the pictorial world into space. Part picture, part object, each new canvas reveals a new attempt at intertwining, which becomes accessible to the artist as “part of a collective” in the context of the work.

The Lechner Museum

The Lechner Museum is dedicated to the work of steel sculptor Alf Lechner.

The museum is located in a converted former factory building in the heart of Ingolstadt.

Lechner SCULPTURE PARK

Nowhere else can you experience Alf Lechner's work as monumentally as when visiting the Lechner Sculpture Park in Obereichstätt. This extraordinary open-air museum is located on the 23,000 square meter site of a former Royal Bavarian Ironworks. In the middle of an impressive quarry, the sculpture park with its landscaped terraces and converted halls offers a deep insight into the artist's work.

Only accessible as part of guided tours.

About Alf Lechner

Alf Lechner (1925-2017), born in Munich, is considered one of the most important German steel sculptors. In the more than sixty years of his sculptural work, he created more than 800 sculptural works and over 4500 drawings. With almost 80 sculptures in Germany alone, Alf Lechner is one of the most represented sculptors in public space.

His work is always about the relationship between technology and art, between rationality and emotionality, between reflection and process, between calculation and chance. Alf Lechner founded the Alf Lechner Foundation in 1999, opened the Lechner Museum Ingolstadt in 2000 and lived and worked with his wife Camilla in Obereichtstätt in Bavaria from 2001 until his death in 2017.

The Alf Lechner Foundation

The museum is based on the Alf Lechner Foundation, a non-profit foundation under civil law, which was established in 1999. Its aim to make the life and work of artist Alf Lechner accessible to a broad public and also to make it tangible for future generations. The Foundation is involved in the administration and art studies of his oeuvre, organizes exhibitions and guided tours, and publishes publications. In collaboration with the City of Ingolstadt, she is the owner of the Lechner Museum and is responsible for designing and implementing the exhibition program. The foundation's Obereichstätter site, which is independent of the Ingolstadt Museum, is also home to the Lechner Sculpture Park, the associated exhibition hall and the so-called “paper house”, where you can experience the artist's graphic work.
