Eighteen serigraphs by Luba Lukova, including some of her best-known social commentary works, are on view at Museum Ulm, Germany as part of the exhibition "Protest! gestalten" Shaping Protest: Symbols, Gestures, Signals.
While protests are currently being made in many museums by climate activists, the symbols of protest are already hanging on the walls in Museum Ulm. With this exhibition Museum Ulm is dedicating itself to socially relevant topics of the time, taking up questions from the reality of everyday life, and examining the border areas of art, culture and society. Protest! gestalten is presented on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Otl Aicher (1922-1991), one of the 20th century most influential German designers, who was born in Ulm.
Selected artistic works and series of works, photo campaigns, video and light installations, billboards, and other media are presented in a central exhibition in a contemporary historical context. With works by, among others: Otl Aicher, Guerilla Girls, Jenny Holzer, Mitsuo Katsui, Barbara Kruger, Luba Lukova, Pierre Mendell, Oliviero Toscani, Tomi Ungerer.
Museum Ulm is a multi-disciplinary museum of art and cultural history with collections of regional, national, international and world cultural significance. Committed to a tradition that will soon be a century old, Museum Ulm collects, preserves, researches, and displays 40,000 years of art and cultural history.
The exhibition Protest! gestalten was funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
