Wildnis

Wilderness

Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

01 November 2018 – 03 February 2019

The search for the last open spaces, the expe­di­tion as an artistic medium, and post-human visions of a world devoid of people char­ac­terize the works of many contem­po­rary artists along­side the rene­go­ti­a­tion of the rela­tion­ship between indi­vidual and beast. With impor­tant pieces by some 30 artists – from Henri Rousseau to the present day – it not only sheds light on the phenom­enon of the wilder­ness in terms of iconog­raphy, but also shows it as a prin­ciple and motor of artistic creative work. The “wilder­ness” has always also served as a projec­tion surface for anything that was different and foreign, for the longing for a primor­dial life beyond the bound­aries of civi­liza­tion.
