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.
