DEEDS CALENDAR: Kulturforum, New National Gallery: Zerreißprobe. Art between Politics and Society 1945 – 2000 Collection of the National Gallery | until 28.09.2025

The art of the second half of the 20th century is characterised by a diversity of materials, media and methods. At the same time, hardly any other era was so marked by division and turmoil, but also by renewal: “Zerreißprobe. Art between Politics and Society” is the title of this collection presentation of the Neue Nationalgalerie on art after 1945 up to the turn of the millennium. Holocaust and war, awakening and emancipation, Cold War and the fall of the Wall led to tensions within society as well as to fundamental realignments in the visual arts. The title is based on the radical performance by the Viennese actionist Günter Brus in 1970, in which he exposed himself to the pull of steel cables to his physical limits. 14 chapters take up central artistic and social themes of the 20th century, such as the question of realism and abstraction, politics and society, everyday life and pop, feminism, identity or nature and ecology.
