Event overview

The curator Jana Baumann guides you through the exhibition "Franz Erhard Walther. Shifting Perspectives", providing first-hand information and interesting insights into her work. 

Franz Erhard Walther (b. 1939 in Fulda) was a key figure in the conceptual departure from the image in the postwar European avant-garde, and a pioneer of an open concept of the work. Through the inclusion of the audience as an actor as well as the use of elements like place, time, space, body, and language, Walther brought about a radical expansion and combination of artistic means aimed at revising the narrative strategies of modernism. The visionary significance of his artistic praxis is only becoming clear to the general public, as demonstrated by the awarding of the Golden Lion to him at the Venice Biennale in 2017.
