The artist is present. 

In March 2019, Haus der Kunst will present "El Anatsui: Triumphant Scale", a major survey of the work of the acclaimed artist El Anatsui, perhaps Africa’s most prominent living artist. As the exhibition title suggests, the survey will focus on the triumphant and monumental quality of Anatsui’s sculptures, with the signature bottle-cap series developed over the last two decades situated at the core of the presentation. Along with these ambitious works, with their imposing physical presence and dazzling colors, the exhibition will also include wood sculptures and wall reliefs, ceramic sculptures as well as drawings, prints, and books. In addition, Anatsui will create several new sculptures, including a grand outdoor work on the building’s monumental façade."
