This retrospective of the work of Marlene Dumas (*1953, Cape Town, South Africa) is the most comprehensive in Europe to date and offers a unique overview of her oeuvre from the mid-1970s right up to the present. Marlene Dumas grew up in South Africa and has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 1976. She is one of the most influential painters of our day. Her art centers on the human figure and on themes such as identity, humanity, love and death. She thereby makes reference to current events as well as to art history. Dumas bases her fascinating, at times unsettling, profoundly moving paintings on images sourced from her extensive visual archive. Paintings and drawings from all phases of her career will be on display, including works that have never been shown in public before.

0,10 – The last futurist exhibition of painting October 4, 2015 – January 17, 2016
0,10 – Letzte futuristische Ausstellung der Malerei in Petrograd im Winter 1915/16. Der Raum von Malewitsch mit Schwarzem Quadrat und weiteren suprematistischen Bildern.

This exhibition celebrates the historic moment in the history of modern art when Kazimir Malevich debuted his new non-objective paintings under the banner of Suprematism and Vladimir Tatlin introduced his revolutionary counter-relief sculptures. They were bitter rivals and diametrically opposed in their creative thinking, so when their new works appeared in an exhibition, entitled 0,10 and organized by fellow artist Ivan Puni in St. Petersburg in 1915, the other 12 artists in the show chose sides. The presentation at the Fondation Beyeler will include most of the works from the original exhibition, many of which are leaving Russia for the first time.

The Black Square October 4, 2015 – 2016

It was at the 0,10 exhibition that Kazimir Malevich presented his Black Square for the first time. The painting, which caused a great stir in its day, enduringly shaped the definition of non-objective art and continues to exert a powerful influence upon many artists today.
