Thomas Schütte exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, October 6 - February 2, 2014

06 October 2013

The figural works of Thomas Schütte, and consequently the human figure and its various forms of expression, form the focal point of this exhibition. Presenting sculptures from the past thirty years inside the museum and outside in the gardens, the show brings together well-known pieces as well as works that are rarely seen in public and others that are brand new. Powerfully expressive women of steel and aluminum, mighty spirits of bronze, doll-like figurines of modeling clay, larger than life heads and figures of ceramic, wood and glass, delicate watercolor portraits, and photographs rich in contrasts—Schütte's oeuvre testifies to a delight in radical experimentation and defies exact classification. It is this that makes him one of the most fascinating and innovative artists of the present day.

June 8 - October 6, 2013

Maurizio Cattelan is one of the most-discussed artists of our day. Back in the 1990s he began to produce sculptures that surprised and astonished the public and the art world. In a humorous and at the same time critical way his works comment on the human existence and the contradictions of our society. The creatures in his current exhibition KAPUTT in the Fondation Beyeler thrust themselves head through wall right into our consciousness.
