In autumn 2019 the Kunstpalast will be showing the first museum exhibition dedicated to the painter Norbert Tadeusz (1940-2011) in Düsseldorf since 1991, comprising around 40 paintings and works on paper. The Dortmund-born artist studied with Joseph Beuys at the Art Academy Düsseldorf and soon stood out with his figurative and figural painting, which clearly distinguished his work from the conceptual, minimalist or abstract approaches of fellow students such as Imi Knoebel, Blinky Palermo, Reiner Ruthenbeck or Katharina Sieverding. Tadeusz, whose idiosyncratic style of painting had a strong formative influence on the Düsseldorf art scene, taught at the Art Academy in Münster and lived in Düsseldorf permanently, spending the summers in Italy. His at times drastic depictions of his often large-scale pictures invariably leave a strong impression on the viewer. Tadeusz shows objects from unusual angles, and his figures are often depicted in extreme postures. The formal structure of his paintings and watercolours often incorporates elements of abstract colour field painting.
The exhibition is realised in close collaboration with the artist’s estate, represented by the Düsseldorf gallery Beck & Eggeling.

30 years after the fall of the Berlin wall, a major exhibition of art from the German Democratic Republic is staged by the Kunstpalast, being the first West German museum to do so since the country’s reunification. More than 130 paintings and works on paper by 13 artists illuminate an era that was charged with tension and often contradictory.
The exhibition presents principal works by the most renowned GDR artists, including Bernhard Heisig, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Werner Tübke and Willi Sitte, and offers more profound insight into their artistic work. Artists of all generations, among them Elisabeth Voigt, Wilhelm Lachnit and Hermann Glöckner, grappled with the strict principles of socialist realism and developed their own artistic strategies. Others, such as, Carlfriedrich Claus and Gerhard Altenbourg, worked in seclusion, while A.R. Penck and Cornelia Schleime openly defied the state. Furthermore, the wide stylistic diversity of GDR art is illustrated by works by Angela Hampel and Michael Morgner.
The exhibition is held under the patronage of the Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Pierre Cardin. Fashion-Futurist
Cardine-Kleid von Pierre Cardin, 1968, Chemiefaser Cardine Archives Pierre Cardin, ©Archives Pierre Cardin, Foto: unbekannt
Pierre Cardin (*1922) – couturier, designer, pioneer of prêtà-porter fashion and marketing genius. A visionary, whose design philosophy has always been to create things “for a lifestyle that does not yet exist– the world of tomorrow.”
The Kunstpalast will be presenting the first major exhibition in Germany dedicated to the internationally renowned fashion designer. Showing more than 80 styles the exhibition offers an insight into Cardin’s creative world: The show focuses on the 1960s and 1970s, the period in which Cardin revolutionised the fashion scene with avant-garde designs for women and men.
His geometric vocabulary has remained instantly recognisable to this day. Cardin made a name for himself in the world of fashion with his provocative, futurist collections, which were strikingly form-fitting and youthful. Using new materials such as plastic and vinyl, his fashion designs with their bold colours and trendy cuts stand for a new, more liberal outlook on life.
