You won’t find an ‘Untitled’ among my works

“In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Neo Rauch’s enigmatic paintings—an intensely coloured mix of realism, surrealism, pop art and comic-book imagery—brought him huge international success. In Germany his work still fuels debate on the pros and cons of figurative painting.

This month the Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden is opening a Rauch retrospective (27 May-18 September, see What’s On). Curated by art historian Werner Spies, the show will cover the artist’s development over the past 20 years. Of particular interest will be the presentation of Rauch’s first sculpture, titled Nachhut, 2011″.

Scheme launched to purchase Wrapped Reichstag

“A foundation has been launched to raise the €10m needed to purchase the Wrapped Reichstag collection from the artist Christo. Negotiations also began last month to organise the display in Berlin’s Reichstag of the artist’s drawings, collages, archive photographs and even lengths of rope and fragments of the aluminium-covered material that shrouded the historic building, as part of the project”.
