BREMEN, GERMANY | WESERBURG, MUSEUM FÜR MODERNE KUNST

John Isaacs takes part in Proof of Life, an exhibition at Weserburg, Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen, from May 24, 2017 until February 24, 2018.
The exhibition brings together 100 paintings, sculptures and photographic works that investigate existential questions in a both palpable and profound manner.  What these works show is related directly to a tradition of influential pictures, some of which go far back in time.  They are also quote, seduce, irritate, provoke and thematize concepts of moral values. This includes a mention to situate in historical terms what is being seen, and also to relate it to the present quite concretely. The works come from a private collection that has never before been publicly presented in this form. Proof of Life presents a precise selection of in some cases space-encompassing but always impressive works by international artistic stars such as Louise Bourgeois, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Anton Corbijn, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Daniel Richter.
