Event overview

Vivan Sundaram (*1943 in Simla, India) is one of India’s most imprortant contemporary artists. Permanently influenced by the 1968 movement, which he experienced as a student in England, he addresses mainly political and social issues of our time. History, memory and archive are all-encompassing themes and concerns in his work.

With “Disjunctures/Umbrüche,“ Haus der Kunst presents a comprehensive exhibition spanning five decades of Sundaram’s work. It shows early paintings, and two sets of drawings, “Long Night” (1988) and “Engine Oil and Charcoal” (1991), that reflect on the aftermath of twentieth century wars. It also includes performative sculptures, photographs and videos. And multi-part installations, including “Memorial” (1993/2014) which confronts the spectre of communal violence in India.   

The public guided tours last 1 hour and cost 3 € plus admission. Participation is possible without registration.

You can also book all tour formats privately at special package prices for your preferred date.
