Characteristic in the pictorial language of Beate Knapp is the monochrome anonymization of the background or underground. The colorfulness is very restrained, it is mostly expressed in the nuances, which are quite finely modulated come into their own. A special motif may be the shoes, which already appear in the 1990s in the work of the artist. Titles such as "zueinander" reveal that the pairs of shoes here are statements about relationships, which is probably also true of other series with individual sports shoes that indicate a disturbance in togetherness. The ballet shoes, created in 2020, bear the seemingly simple title "We keep on dancing." It testifies to an appeal in times of pandemic. "We keep dancing" here also means the urge to do what you have to do. By proxy, it also means: despite or because of Covid-19, it goes on. Somehow.
