ART and PRESS

Martin-Gropius-Bau

23rd March to 24 June 2012

The newspaper has since the mid-19th Century been material and subject matter of art. Artists are using this medium, whether apart in the function as an instrument of enlightenment, or the manipulation, in many ways. Motivation and meaning for the use of the media are always different. The exhibition ARTandPRESS shows over 50 artistic positions on the issue, by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter and Anselm Kiefer to Ai Weiwei, Julian Schnabel, William Kentridge, Richard Prince, Annette Messager and Rirkrit Tiravanija.
