    The largest exhibition of Dieter Roth’s work ever assembled—with some five hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, video works, films, and books—this retrospective brings together the German artist’s production from five decades in an attempt to establish him as one of the major figures in late-twentieth-century art. Organized by Schaulager director Theodora Vischer, the exhibition—accompanied by an extensive catalogue and an ambitious academic symposium—inaugurates an entirely new kind of institution (emphasizing research, storage, and archiving) in a part of Europe that already boasts numerous important museums.

  • Richard Hamilton, Bathers I, 1966–67.

    With Independent Group cohorts Lawrence Alloway, Peter and Alison Smithson, and Eduardo Paolozzi, Richard Hamilton organized the legendary 1956 exhibition “This is Tomorrow,” where he presented the collage that kicked off Pop art in the UK. That display and a number of key shows of his career have been reconstructed in this comprehensive retrospective, organized by the artist himself (with curator Vincente Todolí, director of Tate Modern) and bringing together some 180 works from 1938 to the present. A coproduction between Barcelona’s MACBA and the Museum Ludwig, the exhibition boasts a two-volume artist’s book/catalogue with essays by Laszlo Glozer, Hal Foster, and Sarat Maharaj.
