Untitled: New Painting from Southern Germany and Switzerland
Painting is back. Again. It is bursting with self-confidence, liveliness, radiance, and diversity. This makes it an ideal time to take stock. With a major joint exhibition, the Museum zu Allerheiligen Schaffhausen and the Kunstmuseum Singen are examining the current status of the medium in southern Germany and the German-speaking parts of Switzerland.
What new influences are currently evident in painting? How do painters deal with pressing issues of our time? And what art-historical currents—in an updated form—remain present? Untitled is the title of this boundary-crossing exhibition—a paradox only at first glance: the word is often used by artists in the titles of their works, so as not to steer the viewer’s perception in any given direction. The exhibition also uses this approach, for good reason: it is about discovering the breadth and the multifaceted nature of painting without preconceptions. Though the exhibition is untitled, it features many exciting young painters—an ideal opportunity to delve deeper into contemporary painting!
