The Game of Games in Art

23 March – 5 October 2014


In the world of sport, world cups or championships provide the ultimate viewing pleasure and captivate the imagination of a global public – most of all during the Football World Cup, held this year from 12 June to 13 July in Brazil. Just as in a ‘real’ football game, the artworks in the exhibition present various match situations and give expression to the full range of emotions in a football match.

Footballers, pitch, goal, animated depictions of play, and even the ball itself are all on show – in paintings, videos and installations, drawings, woodcuts, and three-dimensional objects. While originals will be on show on the lower floor, the workshops on the upper floor offer younger visitors the opportunity to explore football through their own art.
