Expert Talk with Dr Tobia Bezzola and Dr Pamela Kort, 06.11.2013, 7 p.m.

This fall, Thomas Schütte’s works are featured in several exhibitions in museums throughout Europe. Two of these exhibitions are shown at me Collectors Room and at Museum Folkwang in Essen. Dr. Tobia Bezzola, the director of Museum Folkwang will talk with Dr. Pamela Kort about – amongst other things – the different phases of Schütte’s oeuvre. His sculptures “Women” that are central in the exhibition in Folkwang also find their way into the printed graphics. These printed graphics on the other hand form the focus of the exhibition Schöne Grüsse Thomas Schütte at me Collectors Room. They are supplemented by sculptures and works on paper, ranging from the 1980s to the year 2013. The expert talk provides insight into the manifoldness of Schütte’s oeuvre and makes it possible to also discover a certain continuity. Another focus lies on the development of Thomas Schütte as an artist, starting from his time as a student of Gerhard Richter leading to his status as one of the most important sculptors in Germany with a worldwide reputation.

Dr. Tobia Bezzola is an art historian and director of Museum Folkwang in Essen (since 2012). Before that he was curator at Kunsthaus Zürich and assistant of Harald Szeemann. His focus lies on themes like modernism, post-war and contemporary art as well as photography.
