Contemporary Landscapes

The exhibition Contemporary Landscapes presents art works from the collection relating to landscape as a theme. During the past centuries artists have celebrated and romanticized the national landscape; plunged into the landscape with easel and brush to capture what they saw; or transformed it into pure shape and colour with aesthetic or expressive force.

Contemporary art since the 1960s has seen landscape painting as an old-fashioned genre. Nevertheless, landscape is still used as a motive - it is documented, measured, criticized or distorted.
The works in this exhibition range from the 1960s Land Art, over the 1980's ironic neoexpressionist landscape painting to conceptual photography of the 1990s, and updated landscape painting in quotation marks.
