Emilia & Ilya Kabakov • Erwin Wurm • Gilbert & George • Anselm Kiefer Diversity United
Diversity United. Contemporary European Art. Berlin. Moscow. Paris. is a joint project of the Bonn Foundation for Art and Culture and the Tretyakov Gallery Moscow. The large-scale traveling exhibition was first shown in Berlin, and after being presented in Moscow it will travel to Paris.
The exhibition shows the scope and diversity of the European contemporary art scene and draws attention to the issue of unity in times of instability. In particular, it explores contemporary European art created after the fall of the Iron Curtain and emphasises the importance of intercultural dialogue today. It poses questions about freedom, dignity, democracy and respect and takes a look at historically relevant and current issues: political and personal identity, migration, (inner) landscape, gender discourse and equality, nationality and territoriality, and geopolitical and social conflicts.
Diversity United brings together painting, sculpture, video and new media, photography, installation, drawing and object art.
