Us and Them. An intricate history of otherness
March 16 - June 5

In the new exhibition we wish to speak about the history of prejudice, fear and fascination; about the history of human judgements on nature; about permanent divisions to “us” and “them”.From images of mythical creatures and demons recorded in prints by modern masters like Martin Schongauer, Albrecht Dürer or Lucas van Leyden; from illustrations in books on monsters datable to the late 15th and early 16th centuries; from mass-produced engraving presenting exotic tribes of the new world; from 19th-century illustrations for manuals in medicine and natural sciences; from portraits, and political and life-style caricatures; from selected examples of 20th-century circus posters; from comic books on Batman and films directed by Tod Browning and F.W. Murnau, we have built an exhibitions on otherness.
