Emil Nolde – a critical approach by Mischa Kuball

Previous Next

The way the Expressionist painter Emil Nolde (1867–1956) is perceived is shaped by past myth-creation and the present-day deconstruction of these myths, making Nolde a good example of just how era-dependent the appraisal of art is.

In his installations, conceptual artist Mischa Kuball (b. 1959) shatters rigid interpretive models and lays bare the many-layered overlapping structures of the production and perception of art. Kuball’s scrutiny of Nolde as historical and highly contradictory figure opens up discursive spaces that go beyond the individual example of Nolde and promises a thrilling examination of the mechanisms artists use to shape their public personas and of the relationship between art and politics.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a trilingual publication (German, English, Dutch).
