KÖNIGSKLASSE IV. CONTEMPORARY ART AT HERRENCHIEMSEE PALACE. Laib | Warhol | Flavin | Rainer | BasquiatPinakothek der Moderne
19 MAY UNTIL 03 OCTOBER 2018
AND MAY UNTIL OCTOBER 2019
The summer exhibition KÖNIGSKLASSE will once again be taking place in the splendid Herrenchiemsee Palace constructed by King Ludwig II, featuring major works from the Pinakothek der Moderne. Rooms devoted to the art of Wolfgang Laib, Andy Warhol, Dan Flavin, Arnulf Rainer and Jean-Michel Basquiat will be recontextualized within the palace’s incomplete historical architecture. This interaction is enriched by the education and outreach program KÖNIGSKUNDE. From 01 July to 09 September, young art educators will welcome visitors daily between 10.00 a.m. and 05.00 p.m., inviting them to take part in a dialogue. The aim is not to improve knowledge, but to discuss the aesthetic dimensions of artworks and spaces, culture and nature.
In cooperation with the Bayerische Schlösserverwaltung.
