International Art after ’45
From 2 September 2022
Beletage + Attic
Opening 02 Sep 2022, 7:30 pm
Abstract paintings traverse across style and movement–from tense and wild to transcendent color field and into heady monochrome works. Detailed city views vacillate to masterful portraits and raw sculpture opposes filigree works on paper. Here the established artists and those less familiar to the art world are equally considered.
The permanent exhibition is a mélange of international art created after 1945. The focus of the exhibition, comprising more than 80 works, is on abstract painting and above all European post-war art and Informel. Among them are outstanding works by K.O. Götz, A.R. Penck, Heinz Mack, Otto Piene and Jean Miotte. Further highlights of the exhibition are the often figurative, Eastern European and East Asian works, contemporary pieces by renowned photographers and an area for sculptures.
The special feature of the permanent exhibition lies both in its global orientation and in bringing together distinct artistic approaches, giving visitors access to a range of historical and geographical contexts.
