Mel Ramos´s entire painterly oeuvre


Capacity for enthusiasm, fascination and abandon – these are factors of pivotal importance in both art and love. This catalogue documents a wide variety of attitudes to the subject since the 1970s. Artists such as Marina Abramović, Sophie Calle, Tracey Emin and even Tino Sehgal succeed in overcoming the supposed discrepancy between what is nowadays usually thought of as conceptual art on the one hand, and feeling on the other. On display are paintings, photographs, videos, installations and sculptures demonstrating in the most varied fashion what has been a popular topic right into the modern period – namely, art as an expression of love.
