NEW ART FROM MUNICH

Munich boasts a long history as a birthplace of great art. The city entered the twentieth century when the Blue Rider appeared on the scene; after the devastations of World War II, it reemerged as a vital place of artistic and political debates, thanks in no small part to the artists’ group SPUR, whose works mark the point of departure for the new installation of Art after 1945 at the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus. The teachers and students of the Academy of Fine Arts exemplify the ways in which developments in the local arts scene resonated in the international art world. Part of the Lenbachhaus’s mission is to present contemporary art made in Munich at regular intervals.

The new exhibition "FAVORITES: New Art from Munich" seeks to capture the scene’s atmosphere in a representative selection. Nurtured by the local Academy of Fine Arts, a new generation of young artists seems to be taking the lead in contemporary art in Munich, with stylistic innovations that may also manifest a different mindset—the show will explore this nascent shift in depth. Hoping to launch an initiative that other art institutions in Munich may seize on, the curators have undertaken extensive research before selecting twelve artists from different generations who they believe embody the essence of the local young arts scene. The selection will not be intended as a normative choice, but rather as the attempt to distill the prevailing mood among the city’s creative spirits.

Curated by Eva Huttenlauch and Stephanie Weber
