- Presents the concept of wilderness as an artistic topic and offers contemporary discussions of the post-human condition
- Includes the work of major 20th and 21st century artists
At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. Expeditions as an artistic medium, visions of a post-human world, or renegotiations of the relationship between human beings and animals influence the work of many contemporary artists. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination. The exhibition brings together paintings, photographs, video works, sculptures, and installations from 1900 to the present. Artists: Darren Almond, Karel Appel, Hicham Berrada, Auguste-Rosalie and Louis-Auguste Bisson, Julian Charrière, Ian Cheng, Marcus Coates, Constant (Constant Nieuwenhuys), Tacita Dean, Mark Dion, Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Joan Fontcuberta, Luke Fowler, GUN (Group Ultra Niigata), Camille Henrot, Pieter Hugo, Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, Jacob Kirkegaard, Joachim Koester, Richard Long, Heinz Mack, Ana Mendieta, Helmut Middendorf, Richard Oelze, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, Briton Rivière, Henri Rousseau, Lin May Saeed, Frank Stella, Thomas Struth, Carleton E. Watkins.
