Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter, Tal R: The Men Who Fell from Earth

Revisiting to the roots of contemporary art, the exhibition presents three painters who have had a lasting influence on younger generations of artists with their fresh take on neo-expressionism.

This marks the most comprehensive showing of Jonathan Meese's, Daniel Richter's and Tal R's work ever seen in Finland, featuring installations co-created by the three artists, a video piece, as well as an overview of each artist’s recent work.

The title of the exhibition refers to the 1976 cult film by Nicolas Roeg, The Man Who Fell to Earth starring David Bowie. The film’s themes – ecological crisis, xenophobia and ubiquitous commercialism – are more topical today than ever. The trio share their observations on the sad state of the world through a veil of absurdist humour and playful performativity. The exhibition is a co-production between Denmark’s Holstebro Kunstmuseum, Germany’s Stade Museum and EMMA.
