Painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, installation, video, performance – all those genres are not from yesterday.

After an Early Death

21.3.2015
While alive artists are the sole creative authority in regard to their body of work and often determine how it is perceived. But what happens when an artist dies at a young age, leaving behind the idea of an unfinished work? In this case, other factors determine the continued existence of the artist’s oeuvre, especially within the tensions that arise from an early death. External forces are at play, and they dictate different kinds of

The Federal State Exhibtion Baden-Württemberg is dealing with the myths that are entwined with the hotel as a semi-public space. Reflecting motifs of desire, it serves as a backdrop for the most intimate occurrences as well as matters of state. Over the past two hundred years the topos of the hotel has increasingly become a subject of artistic interest. Artists have not only examined the hotel as a motif but have appropriated its rooms,

In two simultaneous exhibitions in the summer of 2013 the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and the Kunsthalle in Bielefeld will feature murals dating from the 1960s onward. Artists’ interest in the space outside of the classic artistic framework—the "exit from the painting," as Laszlo Glozer observed about twentieth-century art—indicates the explosive power of this pioneering art form.

Allegro Vivace
12.2.2011 – 22.5.2011
In the late 1960s, Daniel Buren (French, born 1938), purposefully renouncing the artist’s studio, began adorning public spaces with his posters, the so-called affichages sauvages. The colorful vertical stripes, precisely 3.4 inches wide, have become Buren’s trademark piece, a visual tool he has used to this day. Their form is deliberately banal, devoid of content or signification. They forcefully contradict the belief in the

Beginning in the 15th century, artists use the self-portrait to examine themselves and their role. In the history of art in the modern era, the format is inseparably tied to names such as Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Max Beckmann. The development of artistic self-interrogation after 1945 has not been studied in depth. Showing works ranging from Pop Art to art of the late 1980s, this exhibition is designed to take a look at

The Tendency to Inclination
27.3.2010 – 24.5.2010
At the center of Stefan Müller‘s (*1971) artistic debate is his preoccupation with painting and the issue of what it might still formally mean for the present time after similar questions have already been posed to conceptual art and minimal art. Müller explores the canvas with a resolutely minimalist approach and is keen to complete his work without a single superfluous touch.

30 Years of Sculpture
21.11.2009 – 14.3.2010
The work of Georg Baselitz continually transgresses against pre-defined categories and congruity. The ambiguity of his works of art - but also the art historical, contemporary, biographical and image references as well as his ironic distance and love of experimentation - clearly demonstrate how he incessantly rethinks and rediscovers his craft.

Laverrière has been designing furniture and mirrored sculptural works for over seven decades.

This much seems clear, everyone, has a soul. But what does it look like? And anyway, what is a soul? Can animals or things have a soul?
