Germany is considered by many to be the nation of “Painter Princes” thanks to the worldwide reputation of artists such as Gerhard Richter, Katharina Grosse, Neo Rauch, and Albert Oehlen. But is there a new generation of artists on the rise? To find out, Stephen Berg, Frédéric Bußmann, and Alexander Klar visited numerous studios throughout Germany in order to find the most inventive and contemporary artists working today.
 
Now! brings together their selection of fifty-three artists in their thirties and forties who are breaking artistic ground in their work. Showcasing the artwork of the next generation of young artists taking over the modern-day painting scene in Germany, this book presents two hundred illustrations that speak to the diversity of the current work. The artists come from varying backgrounds and were trained in schools in Berlin, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Karlsruhe, Leipzig, Munich, and Stuttgart, and their work has also been promoted in exhibitions across Bonn, Wiesbaden, Chemnitz and Hamburg. As a collection, Now! is a bold statement proving that panel art is to be regarded as an important piece of art history in Germany.
