Hermann Nitsch - New Works

Exhibition opening

May 30, 2020

The exhibition “Hermann Nitsch – New Works” presents works from the artist’s current creative period. Since 1960, Hermann Nitsch, for each of his now over 80 painting actions, has defined a specific colour selection which has gradually expanded over the decades. A large part of the current works impresses with a completely new colour composition. Nitsch found inspiration for this in the delicate colours of peonies and other spring flowers.

“it gives me great joy to concentrate on the flower-coloured luminosity of the smeared colour substance in my work, which i am still able to produce at the age of eighty. more than ever, resurrection is a principle for me” (hermann nitsch, 2019)

Further information will follow shortly.
