Whether arm-thick, intertwined steel cables, imploded forms made of shiny stainless steel, electric motor-driven, movable aluminum plates, folded or deformed steel - the works of the six sculptors show how the material metal can be treated in completely different ways. Sometimes the materiality of steel is revealed in all its heaviness and rough texture, as in the sculptures by Till Augustin or the wall reliefs by Horst Linn, some of which have a rust patina. Then there is the play with illusion both in form and surface of Heiner Thiel's steel sheets treated with graphite and shellac. At the other end of the scale, the cut-open "Cracked Cubes" by Ewerdt Hilgemann, shown for the first time in Munich; the steel sheets by Gert Riel, deformed by traction or pressure and under tension; and finally the "minimal-kinetic" sculptures by Siegfried Kreitner, which have both a meditative and playful effect.
