30 years of ZADIK – Highlights and Insights

25.05.2022 – 24.05.2023

On May 25, 1992, the founding meeting of ZADIK took place. 30 years later, we are now looking at the past, present and future. The anniversary exhibition 30 years of ZADIK - Highlights and Insights provides insights into ZADIK's fields of activities and archive holdings.

Let's zoom in: Spot on ZADIK: The exhibition reveals (art) stories about exhibits from ZADIK's archive holdings: from Picasso's "La Vie", which was traded through Galerie Thannhauser and gives insights into the work's provenance, to post-war developments around Art Informel, the ZERO movement to Concrete Art, Fluxus and Happenings. Facing the questions: How did Pop Art come to Germany? And how did the 1980/90s find their way into ZADIK? In its anniversary year, ZADIK focuses on its history, the contexts of art and the diversity in the art market.
