Knust Kunz Gallery Editions was founded in 1982 under the name Galerie Sabine Knust. Continuous collaborations with artists like Georg Baselitz, Per Kirkeby, A.R. Penck, Markus Lüpertz, Jörg Immendorff, and Imi Knoebel formed an ongoing presentation of their print and graphic œuvre for over 30 years. In 1998 Matthias Kunz joined as partner. The gallery has two locations in Munich. The second space KNUSTxKUNZ+ was opened in 2010, dedicated to up-and-coming younger artists but also holding space for new edition projects and publications, to broaden the possibilities of presentation and interaction. In its almost 40 years history the gallery has stayed dedicated to the publishing of Fine Art Prints, and has realized projects with artists such as Aaron Curry, Josephine Meckseper, Jonathan Meese, Lari Pittmann, Katharina Sieverding, and Christopher Wool.

The Sea by night, when calm, creates a reflection of the moon, that equals a path of silver towards the horizon. The self passing by a mirror discovers that other place which creates the distance between myself and that which takes places within the subject of the mirror. Matthias Kunz on why he choose to present this selection of prints:
"Being an advocate of b / w print editions myself, I thought to put together a series of supposedly dark images. All of them, though, reward a closer look with a path of light through a passing cloud of darkness. Most recently the new print by Daniel Richter combines this long tradition of memento mori with a glance towards the history of art thus rejuvenating the power of form in that area supported by a solemn laugh."
