For the first time, Oppenheim’s little reworked works of the post-war years are reflected and affinities to contemporary art movements such as Pop Art, Nouveau Réalisme, Arte Povera or postmodern design are shown. Oppenheim’s radically open art concept, her connection to the lively art scenes of Paris, Basel and Bern as well as their importance for her artistic creative phases become clear in the exhibition. The retrospective is a collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Menil Collection in Houston. It comprises around 200 key works on paper, objects, sculptures and paintings and gives, among other things, an insight into the world’s largest museum collection by the artist in the Kunstmuseum Bern. Bern is the only station in Europe.
An exhibition by the Kunstmuseum Bern; The Menil Collection, Houston; The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Curated by Nina Zimmer, Kunstmuseum Bern; Natalie Dupêcher, The Menil Collection; Anne Umland, The Museum of Modern Art.
