Prof. Dr. Bernhard Maaz about the exhibition “Lucy McKenzie – Prime Suspect”
Opening speech on 09.09.2020 by Prof. Dr. Bernhard Maaz, Director General of Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen, at Museum Brandhorst.
The exhibition “Lucy McKenzie – Prime Suspect”, with its many entanglements and interconnections, invites you on a detective trail through the lower level of Museum Brandhorst. Like Miss Marple, as McKenzie herself describes it, she follows different traces in her works with the aim of connecting historical and contemporary eras and people.
The objects and protagonists in Lucy’s works are linked together like signposts, thus encouraging us – as active riddles – to search for new interpretations.
