The Max Ernst Museum in Brühl (near Cologne, Germany) presents 13 works by the German painter Neo Rauch (born 1960 in Leipzig) which were specially painted for this exhibition at Max Ernst Museum (the only station after the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York) and to which six further loans were added. The title of the exhibition with the prefix “para” is aimed at evoking a chain of associations whilst contemplating these paintings. Terms like “paradoxical”, “paranormal” or “parable” are indeed suitable for describing the “parallel-world” of Neo Rauch which eludes rational approach despite its figurative and narrative character. “Neo Rauch: para” runs from 28th October 2007 until 30th March 2008.
