Back to Paradise

Masterpieces of Expressionism

The exhibition unifies an outstanding selection of paintings, woodcuts and other works on paper from the renowned collections of the Osthaus Museum Hagen and the Aargauer Kunsthaus. Consisting of more than 130 artworks from 1905 to 1938, the selection includes works of all important members of the artist-groups “Brücke” and “Der Blaue Reiter”, like Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Emil Nolde, August Macke, Alexej von Jawlensky and Franz Marc. The show provides a profound insight into the colorful and expressive works of these young individualists, who revolutionized the iconographic conventions with the aid of their radical subjectiveness.

The exhibition is no longer available.

Conditio Humana

Hyperreal Bodies in Art

We are pleased to present our latest exhibition Conditio Humana, which brings together outstanding pieces of hyperrealistic painting and sculpture in order to question the body in art as a projection screen of the present. As the venue onto which we project our standards and ideals, the body is more than ever where our reality checks take place and where we seek our self and express our identity. Since the beginnings a central subject of the hyper realistic sculptors, the human body will be for the first time explicitly examined from the viewpoint of the photorealists. Thus, this exhibition opens up new perspectives on both approaches of the same tradition.

La Bohème

Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre

We are pleased to announce the current venue of our successful exhibition La Bohéme. Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre at Landesgalerie Linz.  From October 17, 2019 to January 19, 2020 the exhibition presents the extensive lithographic work of Toulouse-Lautrec from the collection of Musée d’Ixelles, Brussels. Toulouse-Lautrec, like no one else, was able to capture the attitude towards the Parisian nightlife through reduced, but expressive forms as well as intense coloring. The relatively new medium of the poster turned gradually into a recognized art form, which radically changed the urban landscape during the Belle Époque. Accompanied by works of Lautrec’s processors and contemporaries, like Alfons Mucha, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen or Félix Vallotton, the exhibition gives a profound insight into the fascinating world of the art of the poster around 1900.
