Marcel Duchamp

Seeing the impossible

Fri Mar 29 11:00:00 CET 2019 - Sun May 26 17:00:00 CEST 2019

The exhibition is based on the Schweriner Duchamp collection which contains 90 works. It begins with early works like the caricatures Duchamp created before he quit conventional painting in 1912. A highlight of his life as an artist are the so called Ready mades that are counted among some of his most famous pieces today. He turned everyday objects into art and by choosing inspiring titles he enabled new imaginative dimensions for the viewer to maybe see the impossible. To this day Marcel Duchamps art inspires many contemporary artists like John Cage, Marcel Broodthaers, Nam June Paik, Ben Vautier, A K Dolven and Werner Reiterer. A selection of their works is being shown in the exhibition.
