Galerie Max Hetzler is pleased to announce the group show BED AND CLOCK, MOON AND BEACH: Edvard Munch, curated by Christian Malycha in Goethestraße 2/3.

In the face of the world’s constant upheavals throughout the 20th century, Edvard Munch (1863-1944) is the painter of life’s fundamental tale of birth, love, fear, and death. Beyond that he is, together with Henri Matisse, one of the greatest colourists of the past 100 years.

Spanning five generations, the group exhibition BED AND CLOCK, MOON AND BEACH picks up the invisible thread, which connects Munch’s oeuvre with our present.

Time and again, Munch is able to spark “vital controversies” and, according to Georg Baselitz, he incorporates “the risk” every new generation has to take, in order “to put itself onto its own feet”. Munch’s liberty and his freshness are unbroken.
