Günter Brus

Share:

From March 12 to June 6, 2016, the Martin Gropius Bau in Berlin is presenting Störungszonen, an exhibition by the Austrian artist, Günter Brus (*1938). Even though he lived in Berlin for a long time and had a major influence on art in the city, it is the first time that his work has been exhibited in the capital.

Titled Störungszonen (Fault Zones), the comprehensive presentation covers excerpts from his full oeuvre. The first thing the exhibition focusses on in the Viennese actionism at the beginning of the sixties. With his earlier, informal work and later “self-paintings”, Brus played a decisive role in the performative turnaround happening in literature and the performing arts.

After being convicted to prison due to the “vilification of Austrian symbols and violating public morality and chasteness” in Vienna, Brus fled into exile in West Berlin. It was there, between 1969 and 1975, the he created his most important works, leading to invitations to documenta 5, 1972 and again to documenta 7, 1982.

A 200-page catalogue accompanying the exhibition has been produced by Walther König Publishers.
