The exhibition taking place from 5 October until early January presents a selection of works from the Peter and Irene Ludwig collection at the Ludwig Museum that demonstrate the diversity of the Pattern and Decoration movement for the very first time in Europe. The spectrum of artistic forms ranges from mosaics influenced by Oriental art, monumental textile collages, paintings and graphic works through to room-sized installations and video performances.
The movement was developed in the USA in the 1970s by a number of artists, such as Joyce Kozloff, Valerie Jaudon, Robert Kushner and Miriam Schapiro. Followers of the movement radically distinguished themselves from the predominant Minimal Art and Conceptual Art of the time. They questioned not only traditional notions of art, but also addressed broader political and social issues, such as activities of the feminist movement, or the situation of Native American communities. Their subject matters were articulated through the aesthetic of captivating ease and seductive beauty: with works that celebrate sensuality, fantasy and colour, as well as an immediate lust for life.
