About the exhibition
Exhibition with paintings, sculptures, installations and video works by John Bock, Maurizio Cattelan, Marguerite Humeau, Yayoi Kusama, Jonathan Meese, Pipilotti Rist and many other international artists*.
In common parlance, an eccentric attitude is considered to be extravagant and decadent. But eccentricity is much more. Because it refuses any ideology - for the freedom of democracy. This is the basic idea behind the first exhibition on the potential of eccentricity as an aesthetic of freedom. The focus is on art from 1980 onwards, but fashion, design, film and architecture are also included in an exemplary way. ECCENTRIC celebrates the diversity and complexity of the great themes of nature, beauty, intimacy and humanism.
Curated by Eva Karcher and Bernhart Schwenk
