about the exhibition
This Exhibition was organized in cooperation with Museum der Moderne Salzburg.
Georg Baselitz / 1960–2008 exhibition show wide section of Baselitz´s ouevre, holds all its phases and approximates painters individual style, which stays true to objective image of reality, despite of all experiments. Fact, that from the year 1969 he standing motives, figures on their head, nothing changes on it. Method of reverse image has been the most consequential step of Baselitz´s ouevre. He insecures our perception by this method, insecures also the idea of perspectively constucted image space.
Baselitz’ paintings are always created spontaneously, characterized by a coarse painting technique and unconventional image composition, never showing any regularity and strictly avoiding any form of categorization. With the development of his oeuvre from “idols” to “new types”, from “fracture paintings” to “standing on their head” paintings, from “finger paintings” to “Russian paintings” and finally with the “Remix” Series, Georg Baselitz proves that it is always possible to devise new ways and methods of painting, even though this art genre has often been declared dead.
