A poster for 'Squares in Motion' at Museum Ritter in 2018.

About the exhibition:
Art that demonstrates change catches the viewer's eye and immediately enchants them. This exhibition demonstrates the different ways in which kinetic artworks play with our perceptions. On show are over 60 paintings, object boxes and sculptures from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection, dating from the 1950s to the present.

Kinetic Art had its first heyday around 1960, above all with the Italian Arte programmata exhibition and groups such as ZERO in Düsseldorf and GRAV in Paris. Spurred on by a sense of new departures in a changing, mobile life world, these currents challenged the traditional notions of art and introduced a host of innovations: space, time, dynamics and rhythm were the themes; electric motors, mechanical drives, light, and industrially produced materials such as aluminium, mirrors and ribbed glass were the means. The works from those years are outstanding examples of an art that combines the possibilities of technology with a non-representational aesthetic.

Artists in the exhibition (selection):
Yaacov Agam, Angela Bulloch, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Dadamaino, Michael Danner, Gerhard Frömel, Gerhard von Graevenitz, Tommi Grönlund/Petteri Nisunen, Sebastian Hempel, Michael Kidner, Heinz Mack, Dóra Maurer, Vera Molnár, Hans Schork, Jesús Rafael Soto, Gregorio Vardanega, Grazia Varisco, Victor Vasarely, Peter Vogel and Achim Zeman.
