The importance of freedom in art is from great significance after the Second World War. Artists demanding their freedom and wanted change.
This exhibition, which is a collaboration between eight Dutch and eight
German cities, is divided into four time zones. Starting with art just before and during the Second World War. Followed by the 50s - 60s with the art movements Zero and the Cobra. Figurative and expressive painting flourished in the 1970s-80s. And the last period, the 90s to the present, where freedom is not self-evident. Or has major consequences for climate change, our quality of life and.… the chance of contamination.
This exhibition tells the story why this art was created. And what functions does art have.
Each time period focuses on a number of artists who have had regional and national significance for that period, both German and Dutch.
All participating artists are Otto Pankok, Jo Spier, Cas Oorthuys, Maria Austria, Otto Andreas Schreiber, Hendrik Nicolaas Werkman, Philip Mechanicus, Armando, Corneille, Jan Kagie, Lucebert, Eugène Brands, Roelof Frankot, Jan Homan, Henk Peeters, Anton Heyboer , Eva Pankok, Karel Appel, Günther Uecker, Jan Henderikse, Ulay, Michael Wolf, Kars Tuinder, Kadir van Lohuizen, Pauline Nijenhuis, Kira Fröse and RoosArt.
