In collaboration with Haus der Kunst in Munich, the Kunstmuseum Bern presents El Anatsui: Triumphant Scale

Curated by Okwui Enwezor and Chika Okeke-Agulu in collaboration with Kathleen Bühler, the Kunstmuseum Bern is the next stop for El Anatsui’s monumental retrospective, El Anatsui: Triumphant Scale. The exhibition focuses on the development of El Anatsui’s work and reveals how it developed from drawings, wooden sculptures carved with chainsaw, and the ceramics he produced in the early years of his artistic career famous to his large sculptures of recycled bottle caps that decorate whole walls like magnificent tapestries.

Due to the emergence and spread of the deadly COVID19, it is unfeasible to expect visitors at the museum in person at present.
