This exhibition to mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI will explore the images produced by contemporary artists of people exposed to military threats across the globe. Its starting point will be Wilhelm Lehmbruck’s sculpture “Fallen Man” – a key work of the time around 1914, created in response to the war and offering a radical counter-image to that of the heroic soldier. Through the works of around 21 international artists – including Marina Abramovi?, Harun Farocki and Danica Daki? – the exhibition will illustrate how contemporary art deals with war in sculptures and murals, photography and installation, film and video: how is the feeling of belonging to a nation or culture expressed in the works of artists who have experienced wars in their home countries? How do they reflect military conflicts observed both from a geographical distance and from up close via the media? And how does this affect the individual and our idea of individuality?
