Ausstellungsansicht - Franz West - Autotheater - Museum Ludwig, Ergebnis, 2008

COLOGNE, GERMANY – – Beginning December 2009
Museum Ludwig will be showing the first major retrospective of Franz West (born
1947 in Vienna) in Europe. The Austrian sculptor is one of the most influential
artists of our times.
The exhibition has been devised in close
collaboration with the artist and will present his works in new combinations and
in new contexts. In addition three monumental sculptures will be set up in the
gallery spaces and in the immediate vicinity of the museum. Over 40
works dating from 1972 to the present, which in some cases the artist has
grouped together in themed constellations, allow the visitor to experience the
sheer complexity and singularity of his oeuvre. On display through 14 March,
