The gallery talks provide space for in-depth discussions with an expert about the exhibition. The second speaker is artist Thomas Raat. He will guide visitors through his personal selection of artworks from the exhibition.  

The exhibition Günther Förg - A Fragile Beauty showcases the oeuvre of Förg, who, with his love for experiment and desire for freedom, challenged the boundaries between various disciplines using materials such as bronze, lead, plaster and reflective glass. Förg's work has been interpreted in several ways: initially he was considered a postmodernist, later mainly an heir of expressionism. The exhibition emphasizes, among other things, the rebellious and critical spirit with which Förg thoroughly challenged the canon of modern art. A Fragile Beauty transcends reductive categorizations and shows the oeuvre of this autonomous and idiosyncratic artist in its entirety.
