Housing four collections of art, prints & drawings, architecture and design under one roof, the Pinakothek der Moderne is among Europe’s greatest museums. Its Sammlung Moderne Kunst (collection of modern art) comprises over 20,000 exhibits, placing the Pinakothek der Moderne the leading institutions for painting, sculpture, photography and new media in modern and contemporary art.
The Raoul de Keyser exhibition is open until 15 September 2019. For Various Others, the Sammlung Moderne Kunst presents a sound performance by Kalas Liebfried that resonates with the seminal work by Joseph Beuys. Furthermore, the series “Denkraum Deutschland | The museum as a place for political discussions” will see a panel discussion, based on the tradition of the participatory spaces set up by Joseph Beuys during the 1977 Documenta.
The exhibition of the life’s work of Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser (1930–2012) at the Pinakothek der Moderne brings together more than 100 paintings, many going on public display for the first time, representing all phases of his long career. The works are on loan from around 40 public and private art collections in Europe, China, Japan and the USA. With a lightness of touch and more than a splash of humor, Raoul De Keyser plays with the conventions of art history. This, too, may be one reason why De Keyser is admired as a “painter’s painter” who continues to inspire subsequent generations of artists. The retrospective is the first major German museum show since the artist’s death.
