Werner Büttner in Elective Affinities, Exhibition Hall Arsenals, Riga

Artist Info

With around 60 art works by 50 artists, this exhibition is the first retrospective of German contemporary art in Riga, from the 1960s until today. The aim of the exhibition is to showcase the central and affective points, as well as the most important aspects of German art of the last 50 years.

The exhibition will include Paintings, Drawings, Sculpture, Photography and examples of Video Art, with a few singular examples of Conceptual Art. The greater aspect of the exhibition will focus on visual and perceptual contents rather than theorization. As the covered time period began with both West and East Germany, it is necessary to show some examples from the DDR. However, while using singular examples, and particularly works from artists such as Richter, Polke and Baselitz, who existed in the East prior to the Berlin wall, the status of the former East Germany is thus largely represented by artists from the post-unification period.
