Hermann Nitsch – Mythos Passion
Works from the Jaegers Collection
Hermann Nitsch interprets life as passion, the painting process as condensed life and thus as the epitome of passion. His inserted painting shirts are often found in a central position in the painting so that the artist remains present in his works and appears as a mediator between his artistic work and the viewers. Associations with the sweat cloth of Veronica, in which according to Christian tradition the sweat and blood of Christ would have been depicted, are deliberately set.
The exhibition shows works from the Jaegers Collection.
