ARCO Madrid 2020

27.02.2020 – 01.03.2020

At ARCOmadrid 2020 Galerie Anita Beckers presents major works by Annegret Soltau (*1946 Lüneburg) and Peter Weibel (*1944, Odessa / UA) from the 1960s and 1970s, including photography, video and installations, some of which have never been presented before.
The aim is to create a dialogue between the works of these exceptional artists, based on their artistic avant-garde approach during those times and their controversial political respectively feminist themes.
Annegret Soltau’s search and questioning of her own female identity coincided with Peter Weibel’s political actions and performances concerning the identity of individuals and society.
With selected examples of both positions from the 60s and 70s, we open a window into their extensive work.
We also show new works by Christiane Feser and Sebastian Kuhn.
