DESCRIPTION

The exhibit explores the early 80s, when Szczesny emerged as one of the protagonists of a young generation of bold figurative painters in the German-speaking world who came to be known as “Neue Wilde.” Donald Kuspit’s essay “Modernism in the Service of the Pleasure Principle: Stefan Szczesny’s Art,”  introduces the exhibition which includes an outstanding selection of Szczesny’s canvases, works on paper and ceramics.
