The Albertina dedicates to the great creator Max Ernst, his first retrospective in Austria. This exhibition traces the artist’s career through a selection of 180 drawings, collages and sculptures, as well as other representative examples of illustrations of books and documents. Considered one of the most important artists of the 20th-Century, Max Ernst was a leading pioneer of Dadaism and Surrealism, as well as an inventor of techniques such as collage, frottage and grattage. In his work, filled with ghostly landscapes and cosmic projections, aspired to leave his audience in a slightly hallucination, as if attending a projection of images generated during the first stage of sleep. This exhibition relates his work with historical and political events of the past and present, giving it a dimension almost prophetic. The exhibition can be seen from June, at the Beyeler Fund in Basel.
