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.
