This presentation focuses on art from the second half of the 20th century and features both the stars and the broader diversity of postmodernism: from Andy Warhol’s silkscreen prints to the reduced forms and figures of Wesselmann and Lichtenstein’s dot-shaded comics, the most important protagonists of American pop art are all represented, with the artistic stances of Hans Hofmann and Alex Katz likewise appearing in the form of major works.
Their output is juxtaposed with that of European artists. Works by Gerhard Richter and Imi Knoebel make clear the broad diversity of artistic production running from figuration to abstraction and from color aesthetics all the way to political themes. And in combination with works by Francis Bacon and Maria Lassnig, they serve to illustrate the complex parallel trends of recent decades.
