Painter and sculptor Georg Baselitz (b. 1938) is part of a generation of German Neo-expressionist artists, including Markus Lüpertz and Jörg Immendorff, who from the beginning of the sixties strived to create a new German way of painting to overcome the horrors of the Holocaust through art. Since the end of the sixties, Baselitz has almost consequently painted his images upside-down in order to free the motif from its lexical subject. In recent years he has alsoworked with a series of so-called ‘remix’ paintings, recreating some of his well-known motifs from when he was a young artist to incorporate the experience of the artist and human being he is today.
Tal R (Tal Rozenzweig, b. 1967) was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, but has lived most of his life in Copenhagen. In recent years, he has become one of the leading international contemporary artists. With coarse brush strokes from a relatively modest color palette, Tal R rapidly worked towards a very characteristic expressive way of painting. In addition to painting, Tal R also works with sculpture, installation, prints, collages and drawings. His imagery is distinctive and recognizable (regardless of expression) and he often works in series, both with motifs and themes across different media. The motifs he finds everywhere, referring to "kolbojnik", the Hebrew word for leftovers or garbage.Tal R's work is represented in many public collections, including Louisiana, Humlebæk; Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, Moderna Museet, Stockholm and Kiasma, Helsinki
