A free guided tour on with Curator Wolfgang Theis through our exhibition Stefan Thiel: 100 BERLIN BASED MEN. No registration necessary, just drop by. Price of admission still applies.
The tour will be in German.
Thiel’s paper cut-outs are world-renowned. They are featured in notable private collections and major museums and institutions in the US, Australia, and Europe. They can be found in the collections of the German Parliament as well as the National Gallery in Berlin.
The silhouettes of Thiel’s “black facebook” (2011-15) are an integral part of the history of homosexuality and its self-portrayal. They circulate in the art world and in the relevant social networks. Buyers include not only gay men, but also heterosexual women who have increasingly been discovering erotic representations of men as collectors’ items in the field of visual art. Using photographic source material, Thiel cut his silhouettes from black laid paper—including simple nudes from behind with dropped pants, pornographic situations on mid-century modern furniture icons, and large sizes such as “Logan + Bird Chair.”
Every Thursday (6 pm) and Saturday (4 pm) we offer public guided tours in English or German through our exhibitions. The next tours are always featured on our event page.
You can also book private guided tours through our exhibitions as well as our archive. Further information can be found on our education page.
Stefan Thiel: 100 BERLIN BASED MEN runs from March 29, 2018 until June 25, 2018.
