Description

In a newly-conceived series, prominent personalities speak about their favorite pieces. To begin with, the author and movie journalist Katja Eichinger will talk about Andy Warhol’s “Oxidation Painting” (1978). Abstract painting and an ironic take on the idea of expressive relinquishment are combined in these late works by Warhol, also known as “Piss Paintings,” for which he covered the canvas in copper pigment and oxidized it with urine. It is said that Warhol, when asked by two old ladies how it was made, could not bring himself to tell the truth. The myth of the pop icon, and a work that suggests a multitude of approaches and cross-media references, form the basis for the discussion between Katja Eichinger and Patrizia Dander, curator of the anniversary exhibition. Meeting point: Lower floor, -1.2

The dark side of Pop Art

The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. At the same time, their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. The tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass cul

Between identity politics and collective neurosis – Art and society from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst

Since the 1960s many artists have addressed questions of identity in their works, with reference to skin color, sexual orientation or social class. They celebrate these identities, but also make discrimination visible. Together we look at artworks that focus on the theme of identity and contrast them with pieces that examine the desire for optimization and the collective neuroses of our performanc
