The Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg is celebrating its 20th birthday. It is marking the occasion with the exhibition Oskar Kokoschka. Humanist and Rebel, which is primarily devoted to the portraits by this extraordinary modern artist. The show recalls the start of the Kunstmuseum’s success story in 1994 with a retrospective on the work of the French artist Fernand Léger.

The golden thread through the exhibition is Kokoschka himself, a protagonist of Viennese Modernism. In his paintings we meet the people he knew and his view of humanity and society, thus providing a unique personal perspective of the 20th century and its major occurrences. 55 paintings, 138 works on paper and numerous documents tell about how he developed his artistic talent based on portraiture.

The exhibition is held in collaboration with the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen.
