Bas Jan Ader

Kunstverein Braunschweig
Haus Salve Hospes Lessingplatz 12
April 8–June 4

Since her appointment last February, Kunstverein Braunschweig director Karola Grässlin has breathed new life into the 168-year-old institution, producing a host of ambitious projects for the space. On the heels of exhibitions by Mike Kelley and Cosima von Bonin, Grässlin will present the first solo show of the work of Bas Jan Ader in Germany since the artist’s disappearance at sea in 1975. Curated by Christopher Müller, the exhibition includes almost all of Ader’s extant work and is sure to add momentum to the rediscovery of this Southern California–based Conceptual artist set in motion with last year’s UC Irvine retrospective. An extensive catalogue will be published on the occasion of the show.
