Juergen Teller in 'The Exhausted Man', Swiss National Museum, Zurich

16 October 2020 - 10 January 2021

 

Juergen Teller is included in the group exhibited 'The Exhausted Man' opening at the Swiss National Museum, Zurich from 16 October 2020 - 10 January 2021.

 

Throughout history, men have created countless heroic ideals for themselves: radiant victors, autocratic creators, images of God. But on closer inspection every ideal turns out to be a task too big, ultimately overwhelming the man. The fourth exhibition by the two guest curators Stefan Zweifel and Juri Steiner at the National Museum Zurich takes a stroll through the European cultural history of mankind. Eyewitnesses from the past two millennia, drawn from philosophy, society and medicine, illustrate the concept of masculinity and the struggle surrounding it. Its traces can be found through the ages, in art, history, literature and cinema.
