The painter Eberhard Havekost (born 1967 in Dresden, lives and works in Berlin) is among the most important German artists of his generation. The starting point for his painting is his own or found photographs, which he digitally edits and then uses as templates for his paintings. Havekost thus makes use of the latest advances in digital photo editing, while also dealing with the effects of the endless production of images through digital media. With an impressive radicalness, the artist questions the authenticity of images: What is it that we see? How much reality is in the surface of things and their likenesses?
