Exhibition Alles Reklame! (It’s All Advertising!) at Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt - from 7 October 2012 to 6 January 2013

Poster Art of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony

At the beginning of the 20th century, posters were regarded as the “fine art of the street”. They were collected by museums and private collections and featured in exhibitions and various publications. In their quest to aesthetically transform all aspects of modern life, many members of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony (1899-1914) set out to communicate their artistic ideas in the public sphere. In the process, they created iconic poster masterpieces that immediately became part of the total artwork Mathildenhöhe.
Alles Reklame! (It’s All Advertising!) is the very first exhibition dedicated solely to this group of artworks. The most important posters of the Darmstadt Artists’ Colony will be on view by artists such as Joseph Maria Olbrich, Peter Behrens, Hans Christiansen, Johann Vincenz Cissarz, Friedrich Wilhelm Kleukens and Bernhard Hoetger. In total, over 60 posters, watercolors, drawings, and postcards will be shown that were created on the Mathildenhöhe between 1899 and 1914. Important posters from the art nouveau capitals Paris, Munich, and Vienna round off the selection.
In the exhibition, the compositions and motifs of the posters, ranging from art nouveau to expressionism, will be decoded and presented in a multitude of variations and studies. For the first time ever, the economic relevance of the posters for the exhibitions on the Mathildenhöhe will be illuminated alongside other new findings contributing to the research on poster art around 1900.

Wineries. Modernisme + Cooperative movement at CaixaForum, Barcelona - from 6 July to 14 October 2012 

This exhibition aims to offer certain keys to understanding the artistic value and architectural singularity of these cellars, also known as Art Nouveau cellars or Cathedrals of wine. It shows various ways of looking at these buildings and approaching them, taking as its central thread the architects (especially Cèsar Martinell, who designed over half of them) and the people who lived them and who still live them: the farmers who mortgaged themselves to push forward a collective project and today's Cooperative members who maintain the commitment and pride that made these architectural giants possible.

Exhibition Male Nudes at the Leopold Museum in Vienna - from 19 October 2012 to 4 March 2013

Power and Powerlessness through the Ages

The endless flood of images intrinsic to today’s lifestyle has given unprecedented public prominence to the depiction of male nudes. At the same time seemingly firmly established categories such as »masculinity«, »body« and »nakedness« are apparently being redefined on a broad social basis, resulting in a new interpretation of male gender roles. These developments have prompted the Leopold Museum to embark on a topical as well as historical journey through the visual arts in search of the male nude, a quest leading predominantly from the longing for antiquity prevalent in art around 1800 to contemporary art.
This exhibition contains some work of Egon Schiele.
