Worship and Adoration
With this spectacular exhibition the Kunsthalle Bremen is celebrating a premiere: For the first time, an exhibition will take over the entire museum. The show will present a single masterpiece in each of the museum’s galleries – from the Russian icon to Andy Warhol. With 60 stars in 60 galleries, the exhibiton will examine how the concept of the icon unites aspects of the sacred, worship and the idea of transcendence. Focussing on a single work of art, the presentation examines various aspects of spirituality, devotion and adoration. It invites visitors to experience iconic art works from ten centuries in a new and intense way. Works by Caspar David Friedrich, Wassily Kandinsky, Kazimir Malevich, Mark Rothko, Yves Klein, Niki de Saint Phalle, Isa Genzken, Andreas Gursky and Kehinde Wiley will be complemented by everyday icons – from consumer brands to icons of popular culture such as Marilyn Monroe, Beyoncé and YouTube stars. An interpretation of the traditional notion of the icon in art will be juxtaposed with the proliferation of icons in everyday life. A once-in-a-lifetime experience in which the museum itself is transformed into a place of contemplation and reflection!
