In their first joint exhibition, artists Margarete Jakschik and Friedrich Kunath transform the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf into a space of contemplation, reflection and melancholy. Under the title Only Lovers Left, the exhibition presents photographs, paintings and installations by both artists, thus bringing their aesthetic positions into focus. The artists capture journeys both inward and out, reckoning with the legacy of German Romanticism while unraveling its conceptual ironies and clichéed motifs of longing. In other words, the Romantic is brought firmly into the present.

Works by Glenn Brown and Friedrich Kunath will be included in a large-scale exhibition on Otto Dix and his continuing influence on art today. Presented in the Deichtorhallen’s Hall for Contemporary Art, the exhibition reveals the shifting cultural and social parameters in the reception of Dix’s oeuvre, while at the same time showing how his work continues to hold great fascination for about forty of the world’s most renowned artists of our day.
