The traditional boundaries between museums, galleries, auction houses, and private collectors are increasingly dissolving. Phenomenal price increases are placing state institutions under pressure. In contrast, commercial galleries are opening new sites all over the world, operating their own publishing houses, managing estates and staging academically curated overview exhibitions.
Philipp Kaiser knows both sides: After working as a curator and museum director at Kunstmuseum Basel, the MOCA in Los Angeles and Museum Ludwig in Cologne, he has been responsible since 2019 for the exhibition program of the Marian Goodman Gallery in New York, Paris, and London.

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 performancGo to the event
