Thomas Bayrle

All-in-One

29 November 2013 - 23 February 2014

All-in-One is the first major survey exhibition of German artist Thomas Bayrle, a pioneer of Pop, seriality and Media Art. In the mid 1960s Bayrle began making work based on the serial repetition of the same pattern using formal compositions indebted to the seriality of the then-emerging Minimal Art movement. He invented a unique visual language through the production of collages, paintings, sculptures, films and books. Bayrle’s work has always retained a critical engagement. His interest in mass culture and his incorporation, in the midst of the Cold War, of the symbols of capitalist and communist societies on either side of the Wall pervades his oeuvre.

This exhibition, organised by WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels, spans the artist’s entire career, from his first painted kinetic machines to his most recent engine installations. Rather than arranging the work chronologically, the exhibition brings together the various, and sometimes contradictory, themes that run through the artist’s work, including consumerism and consumer society, political propaganda, sexuality and religion.

Thomas Bayrle, All in One. Organised by WIELS, Brussels, in collaboration with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Museo MADRE, Napoli and IAC — Institut d'art contemporain — Villeurbanne/Rhône-Alpes. Curated by Devrim Bayar


Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult when entering the exhibition on Level 4.
