WIELS is presenting the first large survey exhibition of German artist Thomas Bayrle (b. 1937, lives and works in Frankfurt) in Belgium.
Bayrle is an influential and pioneering figure whose work has been featured in seminal international exhibitions (Documenta 3, 6 and 13, the 50th Venice Biennale, etc.). He has been an important reference for several generations of artists through his teaching (he taught at the well-known Städelschule from 1975 to 2002). Over the past four decades, Bayrle has built up a coherent body of work, one that triggers alienation through obsessive repetitions that played a fundamental role in what we now know as Pop, serial and Op art.
