ARNDT is pleased to announce the opening of the first solo exhibition of the Croatian artist JULIJE KNIFER in Berlin on 9 December 2010. The show will be on view from 10 December 2010 until 5 February 2011.

In 1960 the first meander-painting was created by Julije Knifer and with it he discovers the ideal form of expression for his 'anti-painting'. By using monotone rhythms and the intense contrasts of black and white, he resisted the criteria of modernity. Deliberately and stoically, Knifer used this form of artistic expression from 1960 until his death in 2004. He himself defined it as 'non-development' - a concept that negated and eliminated any kind of development guided by the principle of the repetition of almost identical motives.
