“Alex Hanimann is a collector and encyclopedist. In the one role he exposes himself to the flood of images and texts that wash around us every day. In the other, he strives to give a structure to the sea of references. To this end, he draws, traces, and copies what he finds in magazines and brochures. Generally, contours with which the things are simplified and seem nearly abstract are sufficient for him”.
Gerhard Mack
