Since 15 March, Museum Folkwang, Essen has been showcasing the artist Albert Oehlen as a collector and curator for the first time. In two rooms of the permanent collection, Albert Oehlen curates a presentation of his paintings and drawings in dialogue with pieces from both his own collection and the Museum Folkwang collection.
One of the most important artists of his generation, Albert Oehlen radically broke with all conventions of painting in the 1980s. In 1984, Albert Oehlen and Martin Kippenberger provoked their audience with their exhibition Truth is Labor (Wahrheit ist Arbeit) at Museum Folkwang, Essen.
