Picasso in Contemporary Art

David Bowie, Michael Fitzgerald

Deichtorhallen, Hamburg, 2015


No artist of the 20th century enjoys as much attention in the public eye as Pablo Picasso, no other artist is given the same level of attention to the form and the expressive power of their works, no other artist attracts such large numbers of visitors to the museums. And since 1912 – since »Hommage à Picasso«, the Cubist Picasso Portrait by Juan Gris – the work of Pablo Picasso is challenge and incentive alike for a wide variety of artists. For generations, »Les demoiselles d’Avignon« (1907) or »Guernica« (1937) have been adapted, are appropriated in the most diverse ways, no matter what approaches the respective artists themselves might otherwise have pursued thus far. It is the inexhaustible imagination and scope in Picasso’s work that challenges artists, between abstraction and figure, artistic creativity and politically intended statement, to ever-new exciting dialogues. The voluminous book is published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition for the reopening of the renovated Nordhalle as the culmination of the 25th anniversary exhibition of the Deichtorhallen.
