With his slashed and perforated canvases (Tagli and Buchi), Lucio Fontana revolutionised art from the 1940s onward and systematically opened up the two-dimensional picture into the dimension of spatial depth. The exhibition Ceramic Spaces at Museum Morsbroich is dedicated to the epoch-making work of the Argentine-Italian sculptor Fontana (1899–1968) and the influence he wielded over contemporary art. His path-breaking ceramics have now been placed at the focus—in the very building where, in 1962, the artist received his first retrospective.
