A Square is a Square is a Square...

Highlights from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection

10 May to 20 September 2015

 

 

This year Museum Ritter will be celebrating its tenth anniversary, and inviting everyone to a large jubilee exhibition featuring a beautiful selection of works from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection.
As chance would have it, Kazimir Malevich’s Black Square on a White Ground will also be celebrating a very special birthday in 2015: this icon of geometrical abstraction will be 100 years old.

The jubilee exhibition will cover both floors of the Museum and present a great variety of paintings, drawings, objects, kinetic works and installations from the constantly growing holdings. Showcasing many of the high points of the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection, this exhibition gives a historical overview of geometrical art, beginning with the various currents in Constructivism and moving on to Concrete Art, Kinetic Art, Minimalism, and to the various current forms of Neo Geo. Included in the exhibition are works by among others Kazimir Malevich, Kurt Schwitters, Josef Albers, Max Bill, Victor Vasarely, Vera Molnar, François Morellet, Heinz Mack, Günther Uecker, Timm Ulrichs, Imi Knoebel, Heimo Zobernig, Brigitte Kowanz, Jim Lambie, and Esther Stocker.

 

Come and discover a host of familiar and recently acquired works from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection and celebrate with us!
