Art after 1945

19 March– 14 August 2016 
Junge Kunsthalle

Gestural painting was one of the trajectories of abstraction to which artists such as Karl Otto Götz, Asger Jorn, Bernard Schultze and Emil Schumacher dedicated themselves in the’50s and ’60s. Their pictures were produced with neither figurative references norpreparatory drawings; at the centre of their brand of Art Informel was spontaneity,processual variation and a joyous exploration of the stuff of paint. Children make use of asimilar working process naturally when they experiment with paints. In the JungeKunsthalle, children and teenagers can study works from the collection and become activethemselves, using their entire bodies.
