Human beings are full of contradictory traits, desires, thoughts and feelings. These contradictions are also reflected in art, human images and their interpretation. The exhibition highlights the diversity of emotions in the depictions of human bodies and portraits in contemporary art.

Both the renowned and younger, up-and-coming positions deal intensively with the genre of figuration, but take very different paths in terms of media. The exhibition combines the genres of sculpture, sculpture, painting, drawing and collage.

The expression “Ecce homo” – “behold, the man” goes back to the Gospel of John. The motif of Jesus with the crown of thorns has inspired numerous artists to depict it, including Albrecht Dürer, Otto Dix and George Grosz, but also literary figures such as Friedrich Nietzsche or musicians like Serge Gainsbourg. If one transfers the Ecce homo image to contemporary art, almost every portrait or human image experiences a further level of meaning in addition to the reality it depicts.

Opening: Saturday, 4. June 2022, 5:00 – 8:00 pm

Exhibition dates: Saturday, 4. June to Saturday, 23. July 2022
