An Introduction to the Work of Georg Baselitz (8/8)

This is the 8th and final film in an 8-part series that introduces the work of the German artist Georg Baselitz (in German language with English subtitles). The series was recorded on the occasion of the exhibition “Baselitz” at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen (Basel, Switzerland, 21.1.-29.4.2018).

The final part of the introduction to the retrospective exhibition at Fondation Beyeler has its focus on the latest works of Georg Baselitz, including a very large painting that only just fits into the rooms of the museum. The piece is called “Avignon Ade” (2017), and curator Martin Schwander tells us what this has to do with Picasso.

Recorded at Fondation Beyeler, 13 February 2018.
