Munich; Freunde Preview at Haus der Kunst; Georg Baselitz “Back then, in between, and today”
by Venetia Kapernekas
A preview of the exhibition of Georg Baselitz at Haus der Kunst opened last night, sept 17th at 7 pm
The survey exhibition offers works that span fifty years. The focus lies on the recurring themes of figure and eagle. The new series of the “Black Paintings” form the contentual center of the conception; together with the monumental bronze sculptures, that were produced during the same time, they supply the iconographic focus of the exhibition.
Curator: Ulrich Wilmes
Georg Baselitz and Ulrich Wilmes, Chief Curator Haus der Kunst; Thursday, sept 18, 6.30 pm
The exhibition spreads in 12 rooms at the first level of the Hdk.
