The special exhibitions of the Museum Lindau have become an indispensable part of cultural life on Lake Constance and are also reaching an ever wider public beyond the region. Since 2011, the Museum Lindau has been showing art of the classical modern era in the large special exhibitions in the summer and a smaller exhibition on contemporary art in each of the winter months. Since the Lindau City Museum in the Cavazzen has been closed since fall 2018 as part of a general renovation and redesign of the permanent exhibition, the City of Lindau is continuing the series in the exhibition space on the first floor of the Former Main Post Office – a prestigious historic building in a central location near the Lindau island train station. As in the past, the comparably large exhibition space offers an ideal setting for highly personal, concentrated presentations that allow the viewer an intimate encounter with the art on display.

Yet the seemingly simple, almost striking artistic language often harbours subversive criticism of unrestrained consumption and the artificial high gloss of our modern, western world. The topicality of this criticism has not changed, on the contrary. For all their beauty, Warhol’s works still strike a sensitive chord with affluent societies.

For behind the endless repetitions of the beautiful appearance of idols and icons lie stories of glamour and tragedy, blurring the boundaries between art and commerce to the point of
the boundaries between art and commerce blur into kitsch. Life, death and transience are inextricably linked.

Highly topical themes, then, which are reflected in the selection of works and promise a fascinating, stimulating visit to the exhibition. To this end, the exhibition organisers in Lindau were once again able to rely on curator Prof. Roland Doschka and his excellent contacts in the art scene. Thus, valuable loans from private collections and art foundations will be on display, which are otherwise not readily accessible to the public.
