Jannis Kounellis
Danza della Morte
1. September – 16. October 2011

The exhibition Danza della Morte by Jannis Kounnelis takes up the 14th century theme of the danse macabre. The rhetorical power of the subject matter is that people of all strata of society, such as kings, popes and simple farmers are faced with death. Life as a dance with death. Jannis Kounellis drew his inspiration for the theme from a 67-part painting cycle of the Mill Bridge in Lucerne.
