The Austrian artist Franz West (born in 1947 in Vienna) is one of the foremost artists of the times. The exhibition at Museum Ludwig features over 40 pieces and constellations of works from the period 1972 to the present, and allows the visitor to experience the sheer complexity and uniqueness of his creative output. From his first Adaptives (Passstücke) and collages in the Seventies, to his papier-mâché sculptures, furniture and site-specific installations, and on to his picture walls from the Eighties and his latest sculptures for public spaces, this retrospective underscores the extraordinary creative energy that pulses through his work.
We were allowed to accompany him during his setup.
