Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel
Since the late 1980s, Rudolf Stingel has approached painting in a conceptual and self-reflective way, exploring its possibilities and media-specific boundaries in the interplay of artistic approaches, materials, and forms. The accidental traces of time emerge in his works, as do conscious references to his own production process. This is the first museum exhibition in Europe to present Stingel’s important series of works from all periods of his career. New works were created for the exhibition.
