"Thomas Schütte: Kreuzzug [Crusade]"
2004-05-08 until 2004-09-19
K21 Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen
Dusseldorf, , DE Germany

Kreuzzug (Crusade) offers a varied and dense overview of works of Dusseldorf artist Thomas Schutte created from 1998 to date. Visitors are offered such disparate groups of works as the Grossen Geister (Great Ghosts or Spirits), the larger-than-life Frauen (Women), objet-like and figured ceramics, watercolors and etchings, along with numerous new architectural models. Most of these works are being shown in Germany for the first time.

Since the mid-1980's, Thomas Schütte has attracted growing interest, both at home and abroad. Solo exhibitions in Krefeld, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Bern, Paris, Ghent, Hamburg, London, Porto and New York, among other places, attest to this. Today he ranks among the most notable European artists of the middle generation.

From the outset, Thomas Schütte has laid out his work across several fields, which he works simultaneously. He takes a skeptical view of esthetic or media-oriented fixations; instead, he takes an open, frequently makeshift-seeming approach to his work.
