ON THE EXHIBITION
The exhibition is being staged to mark an extraordinarily generous gift from the New York artist, Kiki Smith (b. 1954 in Nuremberg). The artist has provided the collection with nearly all the edited printwork she has produced over her lifetime – hundreds of individual prints, portfolios and illustrated books created since the mid-1980s – making Munich the only place in the world where her work as a printmaker is comprehensively represented. The prints address widely varied themes including the human body, the world of animals and plants, natural phenomena and fairy tales, and probe beneath the surface of such questions as woman’s identity, the innocence of childhood and the relationship between man and woman.
