:::::: EXHIBITIONS :::

Opening :: Franz Erhard Walther. Space Through Action ::
The exhibition "Franz Erhard Walther. Space Through Action" (May 26−September 09, 2012) is showing, in the framework of this year's central exhibition theme of performativity, for the first time the complete "Schreitbahnen" by Franz Erhard Walther. Long before artists such as Bruce Nauman used their own bodies as a sculptural medium, Walther has already put himself and the audience into the work as sculptural 'material'. His work can be seen as a synthesis of Process Art, Minimal Art, and Conceptual Art.⁄⁄ more
