Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg Presents an Overview of Aberto Giacometti’s Mature Work


GERMANY.- Space does not exist, it has to be created… Every sculpture based on the assumption that space exists is wrong; there is only the illusion of space. – Alberto Giacometti, Notes, circa 1949. For the first time in 12 years, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is presenting a comprehensive overview of Alberto Giacometti’s mature work in Germany. Around 60 sculptures will be displayed alongside more than 30 paintings and several drawings in the circa 2000 square meter exhibition space. The exhibition offers unique insights into the fascinating oeuvre of one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Giacometti’s vision of situating his figures within their own space and temporality will be realized for the first time in Wolfsburg
