Inhalt

Der Zweite Weltkrieg zerstörte auch die Kunstwelt. »Facing the Future: Art in Europe 1945–1968« zeigt, wie Künstler wie Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ossip Zadkine, Henry Moore, Renato Guttuso, Fernand Léger, Yves Klein, Gerhard Richter und Lucian Freud das Trauma von 1940–1945 und des Kalten Kriegs verarbeiteten und begannen, neue künstlerische Wege zu erforschen.

Das Referenzwerk umfasst rund 400 Werke von 150 Künstlern und vereint zum ersten Mal die Nachkriegskunst West- und Osteuropas. In erhellenden Texten zeigen Experten die verschiedenen Entwicklungen und Bewegungen, von der Trauer der ersten Nachkriegsjahre bis zur britischen Pop-Art und der politischen Kunst, die zu den Revolutionen der späten 1960er-Jahre führte.
