 ‐ 

The exhibition is being staged to mark an extraordinarily generous gift to the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München from the New York artist, Kiki Smith (b. 1954 in Nuremberg). The artist has provided the collection with a complete set of nearly all the prints she has produced over her lifetime – hundreds of individual prints, portfolios and illustrated books created since the end of the 1980s – making Munich the only place in Europe where her work as a printmaker is comprehensively represented. The prints address widely varied themes including the human body, the world of animals and plants, natural phenomena and fairy tales, and probe beneath the surface of such questions as woman’s identity, the innocence of childhood and the relationship between man and woman.
