From Baroque Painting to Tamil Culture

Stuttgart for Art Lovers

Year after year the Stuttgart State Gallery, the Stuttgart Museum of Art, the Württemberg State Museum, the Linden Museum Stuttgart and the House of History stage outstanding exhibitions. In 2021, Baroque paintings, contemporary art and Tamil cultural history will attract visitors to Baden-Württemberg's state capital.

Closing on 5th September 2021, the temporary exhibition at Stuttgart's State Gallery With all the Senses! French Painting focuses on the French Impressionists. Thanks to a selection of around 80 works on loan from private owners, many of which have rarely or never before been put on show, along with paintings from its own collections, the State Gallery can illustrate the entire history of the development of this epoch. In addition to paintings by relevant Impressionists such as Manet, Renoir, Monet and others, works by other artists, including Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt and Paul Gauguin are also on display.
In honour of the 100th birthday of Joseph Beuys, the Stuttgart State Gallery is staging the exhibition Joseph Beuys. Der Raumkurator (Joseph Beuys. The Space Curator), which focuses on the ways in which he presented his art. Until 5th September 2021 the exhibition uses photographs, film recordings and objects to trace Beuys' sensitive approach to integrating his work, the beholder and the museum space.
Peter Paul Rubens is regarded as the most successful painter of the Baroque era. From 22nd October 2021 to 20th February 2022, the special exhibition Becoming Famous. Peter Paul Rubens shows how the artist laid the cornerstone in Italy for his later successes, continually expanding his network and acquiring influential aristocrats, scholars and diplomats as his patrons. Some 100 paintings and works on paper will be on display.

The theme of the exhibition "Walls", until 30th May 2021, is the artistic discourse with the Wall as a spatial border from the end of the 1960s up to the present day. International loans of works by artists such as Monica Bonvicini, Yoko Ono and Charlotte Posenenske go far beyond the bounds of murals and drawings. 
Comb, Pastels and Buttermilk. Willi Baumeister – Adolf Hölzel – Fritz Seitz closes on 26th September 2021. As an artist, Willi Baumeister experimented with a variety of different materials and techniques. In the exhibition, Baumeister's rarely presented pastel drawings enter into a dialogue with works produced by his teacher Adolf Hölzel and his student Fritz Seitz. 

Up until spring 2022, the major state exhibition Fashion?! What makes fashion fashionable at the Württemberg State Museum illustrates the complexity of the fashion business in a critical, but at the same time entertaining presentation. Each of the five theme rooms focuses on a different type of player: from designers to fashion photographers and influencers. The exhibition sees fashion as a broad collective term and shows classic highlights of international fashion history as well as opulent, haute-couture designs, everyday clothing and film sequences. 

In the workshop exhibition Difficult Heritage. The Linden Museum and Württemberg in the Colonial Period, the Linden Museum Stuttgart explores its involvement with colonialism between 1882 and 1940. In doing so, the museum confronts its own history and reflects critically on its colonial roots. The exhibition closes on 8th May 2022.

The House of History is devoting a two-year exhibition trilogy to the three emotions Greed, Hate and Love, beginning with Greed. What drives us. The exhibition closes on 19th September 2021 and presents stories of greed from three centuries: from rapacious princes to grasping colonialists and compulsive shoppers. The second part of the exhibition, Hate. What drives us can be seen from 23rd July 2021 to 30th January 2022.
