Vollgas – Full Speed

17.02.2019 – 14.11.2021, Museum

Museum Art.Plus devotes its big annual exhibition to all things automobile and speed. No other high-tech consumer good has ever been subject to a comparable degree of mythologization. Artistic engagement with cars is almost as old as the car itself. Cars polarise; as an explosive political and social issue, they have always exercised the creative imagination of artists. At the same time, the car remains a symbol of freedom, mobility and adventure - an object of desire and a fetish.

Museum Art.Plus presents works by international artists who focus on the car and speed. Complementing the display is a group of legendary sports cars that will make the hearts of car enthusiasts skip a beat.

Artists: Axel Bleyer, Dario Escobar (GT/ MX), Rainer Fetting, Jáchym Fleig, Friedemann Flöther, Ileana Florescu (IT), Alastair Gibson (ZA / GB), Patrick Gutenberg (CH), Robert Häusser, Tim Hölscher, Sebastian Kuhn, Jürgen Knubben, Gerhard Langenfeld, Chris Nägele, Rob Pruitt (US), Stefan Rohrer, Fabio Viale (IT), Markus Willeke, Thierry Ysebaert (BE)
