Let there be Fashion, down with Art.

Fiat modes pereat ars.

Es werde Mode, die Kunst vergehe.

(Max Ernst. – Cologne, 1919)

I was very much looking forward seeing the Retrospective MAX ERNST in the Albertina Museum, and wasn’t disappointed. 180 genius works, many of them in my special interest like Collages, Overpaintings and methods like the Grattage or Frottage, you wouldn’t find on a daily basis.

Remembrance, discovery, recycling, and collage were the combined motor that drove him in his work. Under these aspects, the exhibition positions Max Ernst’s œuvre between references to the past, contemporary political events, and a prophetic and visionary perspective of the future. (Albertina)
