A group of museums including the Kunstmuseum Bonn, the Museum Wiesbaden and the Deichtorhallen Hamburg have collaborated in bringing together works by renowned German artists.

Painting, not long ago regarded as a dying art form, has made such a rapid comeback that canvases and panels – mostly large and abstract – are barely dry before they are being thrown up at art fairs. But in Germany this was not the case. Here painting has always been seen as the foremost art form and as a result we have the likes of Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz, and Albert Oehlen. A comprehensive selection of works by these and other lesser known young artists will be on display in Hamburg at the start of 2020 giving an overview of the state of painting today.

Until May 17th at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg Germany
