Le MusĂ©e d’Art moderne de la ville de Paris prĂ©sente la premiĂšre grande exposition consacrĂ©e depuis quinze ans Ă  l’artiste Zao Wou-Ki (1920-2013) : « L’espace est silence », jusqu’au 6 janvier 2019. Zao Wou-ki aimait peindre ce qui ne se voit pas : le souffle de la vie, le vent, le mouvement, la vie des formes, l’éclosion des couleurs, leur fusion, 
 Si son Ɠuvre est aujourd’hui cĂ©lĂšbre, les occasions d’en percevoir la complexitĂ© sont encore trop rares



The New Objectivity
Dimanche, 10 FĂ©vrier 2013 18:02
An exhibition in the KUNSTMUSEUM STUTTGART, shown until seventh April 2013.
altOtto Dix with his portraits and radical images of society, expecting war...He saw himself as an unpolitical artist, but he used the sensation of this time.
The current exhibition describes his ambivalence position between enfant terrible and the famous careerportraitist. Interesting part of the show is the dialog between several artists of that time, as Grosz, Schlichter, Lenk ...

altGiving transparence to the national socialistic artpolicy of Dix in comparison with artists and portraitists of this his time. More than 120 pieces are showing the importance of the artistic language of the modernism.

remembering the sentence of Dix, which I was reading long time ago...

'TRUST YOUR EYES !'
may be it was the Dix-retrospective of the Gallerie Stuttgart, showed and celebrated his 80birthday 1972 showed in the Musee d'Art Moderne in Paris. I bought my first artcatalogue in my life, it was Otto Dix. (Faszinated and worried about the new universe at once). What I realized that time, that Dix as a portraitist was never honored that much until 1972.

altOne journalist wrote....JE SAIS QUE LA, A N'EN PAS DOUTER, QUELQUE CHOSE SE PASSE(OU SE PASSA) QUI NE SE LAISSE PAS REDUIRE A L ETIQUETTE NI A LA CHSE DU REALISME

Now, more than 41years later, I could see an different view on Dix portraits and his universe.
