Art and Heritage in Central Europe
The Albertina Museum is dedicating a brilliant spring exhibition 2022 to Edvard Munch (1863-1944). The comprehensive show is unique in several respects: over 60 works by the Norwegian artist show the impressive oeuvre that is groundbreaking for modern and contemporary art. This is demonstrated by seven important contemporary artists – all greats of the 20th century – who enter into dialogue with Munch: Georg Baselitz, Andy Warhol, Miriam Cahn, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Tracey Emin and Jasper Johns among them. The groups of works selected by the artists themselves impressively illustrate Munch’s influence on art up to the present day. They are works that refer to Munch, were influenced by him and were created in the course of an encounter with him.
The exhibition is open until 19th June 2022.
