Exhibitions 2014

July 26−November 9, 2014
Jean-Jacques Lebel
The Highest of All the Arts is Insurrection

An exhibition at the ZKM | Media Museum
Opening: Fri, July 25, 2014, 7 p.m.

Information auf Deutsch

The large-scale retrospective of installative works is given over to Jean-Jacques Lebel − one of the first to shock the international public in the early 1960s with his open Happenings.

The French artist understands his actions, installations, sculptures, objects, paintings and videos as revolts, as artistic actions being directed at injustice, against the terror of war and psychiatry, and against the self-inflicted immaturity of a restrictive culture.

The exhibition provides deep insight into Jean-Jacques Lebelís multiform work − an artist intimately connected with the poets and intellectuals of the Beat Generation.
