Group show: Ana Mendieta in 'Wilderness', Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt

1 November 2018 - 3 February 2019


The Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt is dedicating an extensive exhibition to the fascination of the phenomenon "wilderness" in art from 1900 to present.


The “wilder­ness” has always served as a projec­tion surface for anything that was different and foreign, for the longing of a primor­dial life beyond the bound­aries of civi­liza­tion. Artists have repeat­edly been drawn to that which is wild, untamed, uncul­ti­vated since the begin­ning of the aesthetic modern age.


The exhibition includes work from over thirty artists including: Darren Almond, Karel Appel, Hicham Berrada, Frères Bisson, Julian Charrière, Ian Cheng, Marcus Coates, Constant, Tacita Dean, Mark Dion, Jean Dubuf­fet, Max Ernst, Joan Font­cu­berta, Luke Fowler, GUN (Group Ultra Niigata), Camille Henrot, Pieter Hugo, Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, Jacob Kirke­gaard, Joachim Koes­ter, Richard Long, Heinz Mack, Ana Mendieta, Helmut Midden­dorf, Geor­gia O’Keeffe, Richard Oelze, Gerhard Richter, Briton Rivière, Henri Rous­seau, Lin May Saeed, Frank Stella, Thomas Struth und Carle­ton E.
