The artists' group was founded in the year 1980 by students of the danish artist Per Kirkeby at the academy of fine arts in Karlsruhe/Germany. They organized exhibitions e.g. „The unseen bad painting“ in Karlsruhe and they took part at the Biennial of Venice (1980) with the performance „Kreidekreise“ (chalk circles). Exhibitions: Art museum of Marburg (Germany), „City market art center“- Savannah (USA), Kunsthalle Kammgarn - Schaffhausen (Switzerland) and  59RIVOLI in Paris.... to name only some of their projects.

"Modern art makes use of the variation of the repetition, the sequence or  series, to exemplarly demonstrate the transformation will as such and also the infinitely thinkable richness of variety.“ Prof. Axel Heil, in the article „The nihilisme of the conditions – Kriegfried for everybody“
published in the art book „ precursor and companions – art of the past 60 years“ - museum of contemporary art* – collection Hurrle, Durbach (Germany), 2010. The photos above show the installation of the Kriegfried ellipses in the museum*.
