From his very beginnings in the late 1980s, Rudolf Stingel (*1956) has approached painting in a conceptual and self-reflexive manner, exploring its possibilities and media-specific limits through the interplay of artistic strategies, materials and shapes. Based on his confrontation with classic pictorial themes, he develops a wealth of motif variations. Alongside various series of abstract and photorealist paintings, he creates large-scale works made of Styrofoam or cast metal, as well as spaces covered in carpets or reflective silver insulation panels.

Curated by Director Sam Keller, the collection display extends over half the museum space and comprises around a hundred paintings, sculptures, photographs and drawings created between 1883/84 and 2018.

In addition, the presentation of the collection shows new works by the museum, contemporary works by Pawel Althamer, Philippe Parreno and Rirkrit Tiravanija.

Louise Bourgeois is considered one of the most significant and influential artistic personalities. Over a period of nearly seven decades—from the 1940s until her death in 2010—she created an exceptional body of work, encompassing sculptures, objects and installations, as well as the drawings and writings that form a common thread running through her oeuvre.
