The exhibition presents an extraordinary set of works by renowned modern and contemporary artists like Marina Abramović, Louise Bourgeois, Marlene Dumas, Meret Oppenheim, Auguste Rodin, Henri Michaux, Andy Warhol and Paul Klee. They depict ecstasy as a bodily and emotional state that defies representation – somewhere between life and death, asceticism and excess, pleasure and pain, suspension and fall, creativity and madness, liberation and dependency.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart and the Zentrum Paul Klee.
In cooperation with Dampfzentrale Bern, Universität Bern, Polit-Forum Bern, Kino REX, Lichtspiel / Kinemathek Bern, Berner Münster et al. a diverse public program is being created, with the aim of exploring and making the ecstasy visible in its artistic, literary, social and political dimensions.
