A unique exhibition featuring the Norwegian artist’s self-portraits. Never before have so many of Munch’s self-portraits been brought together in one show.
The self-portraits run like a red thread through Edvard Munch’s (1863-1944) oeuvre. Hardly any other artist has portrayed himself so ruthlessly and exposed himself as Munch does in his self-portraits that centre on issues of identity, exploring his role as artist and human being in society and focusing on his relationship to life, love and death.
Curator: Iris Müller-Westermann
A richly illustrated catalogue written by the exhibition curator, Iris Müller-Westerman, will be available for the exhibition. 280 pages and some 160 colour images.
