6 Farben

The process of finding an exhibition title ended with 6 Farben / 6 Colours. It is a concise, clear title that piques our interest, because it sounds like the name of a collection. Are the colours on the painter’s palette meant here? Or the colours of the works in the show? Why six colours? And of course, which colours are they, now for the season of spring/summer 2018? Looking for associations in connection of the number six and the term colour, some people might think of a rainbow… Some may hoist a rainbow flag in their minds, or remember the Apple logo that was first used in 1977, which played with that combination of colours: the rainbow apple. The technology corporation renewed the patent on this image brand that raises our visual appetite. Gerhard Richter created a painting called Sechs Farben as part of his series of colour chart paintings; that was in 1966. And perhaps someone has tried out Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats [in German: Das Sechsfarbendenken], a training model for structuring thinking – which uses six differently coloured hats
