Weserburg Museum of Modern Art, Bremen, Germany
19.05.17 – 24.02.18

“Proof of Life” brings together 80 paintings, sculptures and photographic works that investigate existential questions in a both palpable and profound manner. Common to all works on display, in addition to their convincing form that addresses not merely the eyes of the viewer, is an inherent narrative power that grips the visitor right from the start. What these works bring to view is linked to a tradition of influential pictures, some of which go far back in time. The presented works simultaneously quote, seduce, irritate, provoke and thematize concepts of moral values. This includes a summons not only to situate in historical terms what is being seen, but also to relate it quite concretely to the present.

Louise Bourgeois, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Patrick van Caeckenbergh, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Anton Corbijn, Thierry de Cordier, Danny Devos, Tracey Emin, Tom Friedman, Line Gulsett, Damien Hirst, John Isaacs, Sergej Jensen, Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven, Anselm Kiefer, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz, Esther Kläs, Alastair Mackie, Christian Marclay, Kate MccGwire, Richard Prince, Leopold Rabus, Daniel Richter, Andres Serrano, Mircea Suciu, Gavin Turk, Jonathan Wateridge
