Three of today’s most important artists meet here for the first time: the photographers Andreas Gursky and Jeff Wall, and the painter Neo Rauch.
Connections between their wide-ranging oeuvres form the point of departure for this unusual encounter.
Select works show how the three artists engage with, push forward and rethink the tradition of the figurative picture, each in their own way.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Andreas Gursky – Neo Rauch – Jeff Wall at Kestnergesellschaft, Hannover, 25 July – 26 October 2014.
