STPI and the Goethe-Institut Singapore present printed works by the leading contemporary German Expressionist Georg Baselitz.
Baselitz is known for his distinctive way of seeing– he began to turn his images, landscapes and figures upside down in the late 1960s in an effort to “liberate representation from content” (Baselitz), and in the process, etched an enormous influence on the course of art in the latter half of the 20th century. This exhibition gives art lovers in Singapore the opportunity to see first hand why Baselitz is considered to be a central figure in the contemporary art scene.
The exhibition features 82 etchings and woodcuts, representing central positions of his work from 1965–1992. As a printmaker, Baselitz has enriched the graphic technique of woodcut, etching and lithography whilst challenging the viewer’s approach to seeing art.
