For many decades, the works of Hannes Vogel have been an integral part of the Collection DKM and occupy a unique position in it. On the artist’s 80th birthday, the Museum DKM paid tribute to the artist with a presentation of his latest works and emphasized the close relationship with his work. There were drawings from the publication Die. death, which he created together with his wife Petruschka.

Hannes Vogel was born in May 1938 in Chur, Switzerland. His father was a cemetery gardener, death was commonplace from childhood. In his artistic work, death became relevant only a few years ago, after reading Paul Celan’s death fugue, among others. The current exhibition follows on from the works of Finnegan’s Visual School, 1999, and The Shards of Beauty is not that of the pots, 1998, from the Collection DKM. Both works are regularly presented in the permanent exhibition.

With the exhibition Dying. The work of the Swiss artist was honored for the fifth time by Dirk Krämer and Klaus Maas after solo exhibitions at Gallery Linie (1984, 1989), Gallery DKM (2001) and Museum DKM (2009). His works are also regularly present in the permanent exhibition and were an important building block of the last special exhibition Art & Coal and The Black Side.

The exhibition is based on the publication Die. Death published in 2016 by Hannes and Petruschka Vogel.
