The Museum Villa Stuck is a nationally and internationally renowned meeting place for art from the 19th to the 21st century. An important collection of works by Franz von Stuck (1863-1928) and international exhibitions on art around 1900 as well as modern and contemporary art make the Museum Villa Stuck a unique venue of artistic life.
The group exhibition From Far Away. Images of the GDR (Von Ferne. Bilder zur DDR) features photographs from, and about, the GDR. The works on display are photographs by others and of their own (used again) that the artists have appropriated and rereleased for fresh viewing. Some of these works go beyond appropriation on the visual plane to interlock image and text in transmedial approaches, using one as the foil to the other and vice versa.
