The Luminous West

THE LUMINOUS WEST brings 33 artists from two generations together to achieve a broad-based definition of where the art landscape of the Rhineland and North Rhine-Westphalia stands, documents the measuring stick of the artistic legacy of this region, wants to be a compendium of its history during the 20th century and as well shows the future of its art.
Departing from the presentation of the major artists of the older generation with their respective new works, in turn, these works are connected with central positions in the art of the younger artists – as fruitful combination of historical and current perspectives.
The special concept: The selection of the older generation was made by the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the younger generation was selected by the artists that have already been chosen - a deliberate signal for laying to rest the specter of the omnipotent curator and as an acknowledgment of the primary achievements of the artists.
