At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


Georg Baselitz / Arnulf Rainer

New works
Baselitz and Rainer’s artistic histories have taken different paths. But they have one similarity: they are both painters by disposition and the vitality of their “signature”, in many diverse ways, has always been significant. Both are very involved with life, with the experience and wisdom of age. Therefore It is logical that the exhibition in Arnulf Rainer Museum in Baden and the catalogue focus on their most recent, vital, contemporary works. Both display incredible freedom in their current art practice. They really seem to be enjoying themselves, which is why this exhibition of exclusively new work, curated by Rudi Fuchs, has the subtitle: Lustspiel (Comedy).
